Celebrating 10 years of “Word from the Appalachian South,” The Revivalist’s Mark Lynn Ferguson reflects on Appalachian craft, food and literature in a conversation with BOOK CITY ★ Roanoke‘s Douglas Jackson.
Ferguson is co-owner of Crafteria in downtown Roanoke. The vendor-filled space celebrates contemporary makers of Southern Appalachia craft and includes a retail presence for his blog. In this twentieth conversation of the podcast, Ferguson discusses economic disparity, regional identity, and the resurgence of interest in Appalachian culture.
“Something like vinegar pie comes to mind,” says Ferguson. “That kind of ingenuity is born of necessity.”
