Appalachia Now! artist Clarissa Sligh and special guest Kimberly Purser perform a reading of excerpts from Sligh’s artists’ books: Transforming Hate: An Artist’s Book (2016) and My Mother, Walt Whitman and Me (2019). Historical elements, photography, and memory are used as framing devices to construct the evolution of personal and social identity. Both books were published in Asheville.
