Our group has selected a fiction work for November's read: award-winning West Virginia author Ann Pancake's Strange As This Weather Has Been.
The book dramatizes the impact of rapacious mining on the members of an Appalachian family, their land and their culture's place-based traditions. For information about the author and links to reviews, see Pancake's blog here. Read Pancake's short story "The End of the World in Slow Motion" online here
