Symposium on Mountaintop Removal
A symposium called “Writing about Mountain Culture, Mountain Top Removal, and the Environment” will be taking place at Marshall University on Friday, Oct. 20 and Saturday, Oct. 21.
Six authors will hold writing workshops, give readings, and engage in roundtable discussions. The authors include Chris Holbrook, Charlie Hughes, Kristin L. Johannsen, Eric Reese, Anne Shelby, and Mary Ann Taylor-Hall, all of whom worked on Missing Mountains (Wind Publications, 2005), a book dedicated to stopping mountain top removal. Denise Giardina will be the featured speaker on Saturday afternoon.
For details about times and events, email Chris Green. Anyone interested may participate (all activities are free), but space in writing workshops is limited, so interested parties are recommended to register by contacting Green.
