News from the Hills and Surrounds

appalachiamapThis post is a con­tin­u­a­tion of what I want­ed to do with FCAC from the begin­ning; that is, to reg­u­lar­ly post rel­e­vant news and tid­bits as relat­ed to lit­er­a­ture and Appalachia and so forth. I get a fair num­ber of arti­cles worth shar­ing, so I'm going to do one news post a week. Feel free to com­ment. It'll be more fun for every­body. Please please feel free as well to email me sim­i­lar arti­cles you find in your inter­net trav­els. I'll post a link to your site if I end up using a link you send me. Hit me up as well if the URL no longer func­tions, or if you have any oth­er ques­tions. rusty.​barnes@​gmail.​com
