This course is in response to OLLI’s overwhelmingly positive reception of last fall’s Appalachian Sampler. This eight-week session will feature music, dance, Cherokee culture/ history, storytelling, and add some new topics including NASCAR and moonshine, religion, Thomas Wolfe, and a look at Appalachian families.
