New Songs from an Old Mountain
Produced by: Susan Davis
A personal journey through the contemporary literary landscape of Appalachia, guided by some of the new young poets and fiction writers in the region. We explore issues of identity, stereotypes, dialects, and how a new generation defines "home." This diverse group of young writers reflects on these issues in conversation, and they read to us from their recent poems and stories.

Program Credits

New Songs from an Old Mountain was produced by Susan Davis. Special thanks to Jim Harms and West Virginia University. This program was funded in part by The National Endowment for the Arts.
