NRCC to offer Appalachian literature course

Jul 20 2011

This is an archived article!

This article was published on Jul 20 2011 and was archived on Jul 21 2012. The information below may be outdated or inaccurate.

The works of notable authors from the eight-state Southern Appalachian region will be featured in a course at New River Community College starting next month.

Students can expect to examine fiction, nonfiction and poetry from a wide variety of Appalachian authors (both past and present) and discover the unique history and culture of the area along with exploring contemporary Appalachian issues.

The course will also offer students a chance to create some of their own "Appalachian" literature in the form of poems and short stories.

Ben Campbell, NRCC English instructor, will teach the course and has already scheduled a guest visit by award-winning Appalachian author Jim Minick in October.

Fall course registration is going on now and classes begin Monday, August 22. To see the fall semester class schedule, visit www.nr.edu/schedule .

Call Toll Free: 1-866-462-6722 or (540) 674-3600 plus the extension number to reach any employee.
