2011: Red Holler: Appalachian Literature
edited by John E. Branscum and Wayne Thomas
Red Holler takes us beyond the stock imagery of rural Appalachian communities. We travel into housing projects, forest-stripped ravines, and trailer high-rises. The anthology spans ten years and the mountain range from Mississippi to New York, Native American myth, African American urban legend, folk culture, and European ghost stories, placing fresh new voices alongside widely known and celebrated authors.
