A Conversation With An 'Urban' Appalachian On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, for a lot of writers and publishers, Appalachia means stories of the country and the coal mining or farming experience, but that’s not true for all Appalachian writers. We hear from Huntington-based author Marie Manilla who identifies as an “urban Appalachian.”
