November 2018 - News of the Appalachian Literary Scene

Ramp Hollow: The Ordeal of Appalachia by Steven Stoll was one of five books short-listed for Phi Beta Kappa’s Ralph Waldo Emerson Award, but it was not selected as the final winner.

The West Virginia Library Commission and the West Virginia Center for the Book have announced the One Book One West Virginia selection for 2018-19. Each year, one book written by an Appalachian author is selected for this prestigious honor, and this year's honoree is Water Street by Crystal Wilkinson.
