Hill Women: A Virtual Event with Author Cassie Chambers
October 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Nestled in the Appalachian mountains, Owsley County is one of the poorest counties in both Kentucky and the country. Buildings are crumbling and fields sit vacant, as tobacco farming and coal mining decline. But strong women are finding creative ways to subsist in their hollers in the hills. Cassie Chambers grew up in these hollers and, through the women who raised her, she traces her own path out of and back into the Kentucky mountains. After rising from poverty to earn two Ivy League degrees, Chambers pays tribute to the strong “hill women” who raised and inspired her, and whose values have the potential to rejuvenate a struggling region.
Join Cassie Chambers as she reads from and discusses her book, Hill Women. Learn about her story, her writing process, and take part in a virtual Q&A.
