Celebrating Gurney Norman & Bill Turner: A&S Hall of Fame Inductees

10/14/2021 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm
Appalachian Center, 624 Maxwelton Ct.
Please come by the Appalachian Center on Thursday, October 14, 5-6PM, for a drop-in to congratulate Professors Gurney Norman and Bill Turner on their induction (the next day) into the College of Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame. Both of them have made tremendous and far-reaching contributions to Appalachian Studies through their ongoing work. Here's a chance to let them know what that means, in person! Drop in and join us in congratulating them on this honor from A&S, and hear about their exciting current projects. Professor Turner's book, The Harlan Renaissance: Stories of Black Life in Appalachian Coal Towns has just been published by West Virginia University Press, and a new, expanded edition of Professor Norman's short story collection Allegiance: Stories has just been published by Ohio University Press.
This event is co-sponsored by the Appalachian Center & Appalachian Studies Program, the Department of Sociology, the Department of English, and the Commonwealth Institute for Black Studies.
