BARBARA MARIE MINNEY TO BE FEATURED AT APPALACHIAN STUDIES ASSOCIATON CONFERENCE


 



 

I am very excited about the upcoming Appalachian Studies Association (ASA) Conference at Western Carolina University! I will be involved in a panel discussion, two poetry readings, and a performance of my multimedia presentation of “Queer in the Holler: An Appalachian Journey of Perseverance.”

 

I hope to see some old and new friends at some of my events, so don’t hesitate to come up and say “howdy.”
