Author Event: Appalachian Reckoning

Page 158 Books welcomes Meredith McCarroll, editor of Appalachian Reckoning, and Jeremy B. Jones, contributor and author of Bearwallow, to Wake Forest. The essays and creative work collected in Appalachian Reckoning provide a deeply personal portrait of a place that is at once culturally rich and economically distressed, unique and typically American. Complicating simplistic visions that associate the region almost exclusively with death and decay, Appalachian Reckoning makes clear Appalachia’s intellectual vitality, spiritual richness, and progressive possibilities.
