On this West Virginia Morning, talks on renegotiating NAFTA are set for later this month and farm country is concerned about changes to the trade agreement. Nicole Erwin reports that pork producers in the Ohio Valley could have the most to lose in a trade dispute.

Also on this morning's show, a few years back, West Virginia writer and filmmaker Danny Boyd stepped into the world of graphic novels. He released books like ‘Carbon’, a story about an ancient race of people and their effect on the coal industry thousands of years later set in a mythological version of West Virginia. The follow-up ‘Salt’ was released late last year. Dave Mistich spoke with Boyd about his latest graphic novel, some of the social and environmental issues the novel grapples with.
