There is a book about food - and more than food - here in Appalachia.
It’s called “The Food We Eat, the Stories We Tell: Contemporary Appalachian Tables.”
The book is a collection of essays and poetry, published by Ohio University Press - and edited by Prof. Elizabeth Engelhardt of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with Lora Smith.
Elizabeth joined me for a conversation - along with two contributors to the book.
Emily Wallace - who lives in Durham, North Carolina - is art director and deputy editor of “Southern Cultures Quarterly.”
Robert Gipe - who lives in Harlan, Kentucky and grew up in Kingsport in East Tennessee - is a writer and producer of The Higher Ground Theater Project.
