As part of the Literary Festival, Sigma Tau Delta is sponsoring a documentary entitled Hillbilly to be shown in the UC Theater at 1 PM on March 27. There will be a thirty-minute panel discussion after. The film is a more nuanced exploration of issues of Appalachian identity in light of continuing discussions that move beyond region to the nation (i.e. Ron Howard’s upcoming film of J. D. Vance’s controversial Hillbilly Elegy). Silas House, one of the writers coming to the festival, is the executive producer.
