The Anthology of Appalachian Writers, supported by the Shepherd University Foundation and the West Virginia Center for the Book, is a publication that encourages a long-established tradition of storytelling, love of language, and creative expression associated broadly with the area of the country known as Appalachia. Each year the anthology is celebrated during the annual Appalachian Writer in Residence festival held in Shepherdstown, WV. In this latest volume author Karen Spears Zacharias is featured as well as many other writers, poets, and artists from throughout Appalachia. This work will be showcased by Dr. Sylvia Bailey Shurbutt of Shepherd University, Marc Harshman current WV poet laureate, and local poet, Ashley Wilkins. This presentation and reading will take place on Saturday September 28th at 11am at the Moorefield Presbyterian Church on Main Street in Moorefield.
