Program Description

Event Details

Learn how this new work of regional fiction published by Ohio University Press came to be written, then listen to stirring excerpts through an online meet-the-author experience.  

From the book jacket:

Goshen Road is an elegiac, unvarnished, and empathetic portrait of one working-class family over two decades in rural West Virginia, with sisters Dessie and Billie Price as its urgently beating heart. Bonnie Proudfoot captures them, their husbands, and their children as they balance on the divide between Appalachia old and new, struggling for survival and reconciling themselves with past hurts and future uncertainties as the economy and culture shift around them."Our guest author moved to the Appalachian region in 1979 and taught for many years at Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio. She is a fiction writer, a poet, and a glass artist. This is her first book.
