The Unrecognized Strength of Appalachian Women

Pamela Duncan interviewing Silas House at the Emory and Henry Literary Festival in Oct. 2009

Friday from the Archives: “Not since Wilma Dykeman’s Tall Woman (1962) has a Southern Appalachian novelist focused with such intensity on the often unrecognized strength of Appalachian women.” Read Joyce Brown’s introduction to Silas House’s interview with Pamela Duncan; then read the whole interview in NCLR 2010.
