May Feature Presentation

I scream red . . . for a secret passage to air: Willow Grove Mine cries out in a poem in the aftermath of a gaseous explosion that claimed the lives of 72 coal miners, devastating a community in Southeastern Ohio for decades.  

Join us on Wednesday, May 15th at 6pm for stories through poetry and prose with Ohio Native, Jonathan Graham. Graham’s verse harkens back to a time when hard-working Appalachians were left to reckon with the grief that followed the Willow Grove  Mine disaster. In spite of hardships, they were able to celebrate life’s joys and forged a better life for themselves, their families, and their beloved land. This program is open to the public, all are welcome. Registration is requested, however not required. 740-695-2062
