Yesterday, I went to a book launch for local author, Ann Pancake.  She is the author of Strange as this Weather Has Been, a novel about life in rural West Virginia.  The excerpt she read was gorgeous and sad and funny-I understand it’s also a sometimes painful read about the devastating practice of "mountaintop removal" mining, and the way it destroys communities.

Full disclosure, Ann is machetunim, if you’ll forgive a shikse some Yiddish.  Please to read!
