CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – The Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library has announced that on Dec. 10, they will host the Women of Appalachia Project’s “Women Speak” performance from 12-2 p.m.

The event, “Women Speak: An Afternoon of Story, Poetry & Song,” which will be held at Waldomore and online at Zoom, will feature women artists across Appalachia showcasing a juried performance of stories, poetry and songs, and will also mark the publication of their latest book.

According to the announcement, “the mission of Women of Appalachia Project is to showcase the way in which female artists respond to the Appalachian region as a source of inspiration, bringing together women from diverse backgrounds, ages and experiences to embrace the stereotype – to show the whole woman; beyond the superficial factors that people use to judge her.”
