On the Bookshelf
Our University Bookstore has a featured section for published works by Appalachian faculty. Next time you’re in the building, take a moment to look through the wide selection – you’ll find volumes of poetry by former N.C. Poet Laureate Joseph Bathanti and others, as well as a range of reading choices from sports to religious studies, travel and fiction. These and the many textbooks, journal articles and reviews published regularly comprise a rich collection of diverse and inspired Appalachian voices. For others with aspirations of writing, are you aware of the University Writing Center? The center’s services are free and open to anyone in the Appalachian Community. Stop in. You’ll find a dedicated space for writing and access to a variety of helpful resources.
