SharePrint Contemporary Literature from West Virginia WVHC Event

May 19, 2019

Charleston, Kanawha


The May 19 Little Lecture brings Mount St. Mary’s University Provost Dr. Boyd Creasman to MacFarland-Hubbard House for a presentation titled “Contemporary Literature from West Virginia” that draws from his recent book Writing West Virginia. Creasman was an English faculty member and administrator for 27 years at West Virginia Wesleyan College. His research and teaching of Appalachian literature informed his book that was published in 2016 by University of Tennessee Press and the first critical study of literature from the Mountain State to analyze multiple authors.

Little Lectures are presented on Sunday afternoons at 2:00 p.m. at our headquarters located at 1310 Kanawha Boulevard, East, Charleston, in the parlor of MacFarland-Hubbard House. Seating is limited (thus “Little” Lectures) and reservations are suggested. Admission is $10 per person and includes refreshments after the lecture. Call Mark Payne at 304.346.8500 or email payne@wvhumanities.org for further information.
