In our new Talking Appalachian series, we discuss what makes historic Appalachian dialects so unique and flavorful. Our first episode in this series features acclaimed author and Kentucky native Silas House, who was a contributor to the edited collection Talking Appalachian, which inspired this series. He is the award-winning author of six novels and numerous plays and essays. His forthcoming novel, Lark Ascending, will be published in the fall of 2022.
