Kami Ahrens to Present The Foxfire Book of Appalachian Women

 Kami Ahrens will visit City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, April 15th, at 3 p.m. She will present her new book, The Foxfire Book of Appalachian Women. This new volume in the Foxfire series is the first focused specifically on the lives of Appalachian women.

Annette Saunooke Clapsaddle, the author of Even As We Breathe, said of the book, “These authentic, unaffected firsthand accounts show that we have much to learn from these women--their compelling knowledge has enlivened these communities and is critical to a broader understanding of place."

Kami Ahrens is curator and director of education at the Foxfire Museum. To reserve copies of The Foxfire Book of Appalachian Women, please call City Lights Bookstore at 828-586-9499 or click the link below.
