Don’t Cry for Us, J.D. Vance: A Virtual Reading by Ohio Appalachian Authors

On December 3, 2020, Downbound Books, the Urban Appalachian Community Coalition and West Virginia University Press co-sponsored “Don’t Cry for Us J.D. Vance, A Reading by Ohio Appalachian Authors,” a program intended to broaden awareness of Appalachia and its people by offering a reading from some of Ohio’s most respected Appalachian authors and advocates. Short readings were followed by a conversation about the strengths and challenges of Appalachian communities, both urban and rural. Presenters were Gregory Kornbluh of Downbound Books (co-host), Pauletta Hansel of the Urban Appalachian Community Coalition (co-host and author), and Omope Carter Daboiku, Kari Gunter Seymour, Richard Hague, Michael Henson, Michael Maloney, Dale Marie Prenatt, Bonnie Proudfoot and Sherry Cook Stanforth (authors).

ABOUT THIS ARTIST ON OUR CULTURAL DIRECTORY WEBPAGE
Attention Urban Appalachian Writers and Artists

Would you be willing to write an essay for the new digital textbook in Appalachian Studies proposed by a group of EKU faculty - particularly the topic of celebrating Appalachian Arts in the Diaspora?  There are many ways to approach the topic such as:
  • Biography of an artist
  • Community celebrations such as festivals
  • Home and other family practices
  • Cincinnati or the Miami Valley as the Epicenter of Appalachian Music
  • Is Bluegrass (or other genres) being handed down or being appropriated by non-Appalachians?
  • Cincinnati/Dayton Area as a center of Appalachian literature
HERE is the link to the call for submissions. A 500-word prospectus is due December 15. The essay is due April 15. If you need help or advice feel free to call (513-531-8799) or write (meamon@aol.com) Mike Maloney with the UACC Research Committee.
