News from “Mountain Girl” Stephanie Kadel Taras

I received this email from my APH colleague Stephanie Kadel Taras, author of Mountain Girls, this morning. I posted an interview and excerpt from her book earlier this year. I’m pleased to share her news! -Sarah White

Hello friends!

I’m excited to share that I’m the guest blogger today on the excellent blog and podcast,, curated by fellow West Virginia ex-pat Dave Tabler:

mt girls coverThe blog post includes a new short piece about one of the stops on my West Virginia book tour this past May and why I wrote Mountain Girls, plus an excerpt from the book. This guest blog is a real privilege, as Dave’s website is a rich trove of quality work from Appalachian writers and historians. I’m humbled to be in such company and honored that Dave included me.

In addition, I have made an audio recording of the first chapter of Mountain Girls—just me reading my story. If you wanna hear it, the free audio is now available on my website:

Hope this message finds you well and relishing summer,
