The Southern Appalachian Culture Series embraces and showcases the culture, literature, and traditions of Southern Appalachia. We are dedicated to finding the literary gems and scholars throughout the Southern Appalachian region. Every two years a festival focusing on a theme or featuring a nationally renowned writer is held at Gardner-Webb University in celebration of Southern Appalachian culture.
