This post is a continuation of what I wanted to do with FCAC from the beginning; that is, to regularly post relevant news and tidbits as related to literature and Appalachia and so forth. I get a fair number of articles worth sharing, so I'm going to do one news post a week. Feel free to comment. It'll be more fun for everybody. Please please feel free as well to email me similar articles you find in your internet travels. I'll post a link to your site if I end up using a link you send me. Hit me up as well if the URL no longer functions, or if you have any other questions. email@example.com
These articles were found (mostly) through Google alerts attached to the terms 'hillbilly,' 'redneck,' 'white trash,' and 'Appalachia,' with occasional articles lifted from the Appalnet listserv.
