What Are You Reading?
This week, I'm finishing a book recommended by two people, columnist Connie Schultz, and my friend, Kaye Wilkinson Barley. Elizabeth Catte is a writer and historian from East Tennessee. She holds a PhD in public history. Her nonfiction title, What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia, is an alternate view in opposition to J.D. Vance's Hillbilly Elegy. The author writes of Appalachia with its 700,000 square miles, and says it cannot be defined as one ethnicity, one political view, one history. Vance's book is a memoir. Catte's book is history and an analysis.
What are you reading this week? I'm finishing my nonfiction book, and I have several fiction titles waiting. We're all curious as to what you're reading or listening to.
