Tonight, Noah Davis joins Sunday LIVE and will read from his book Of This River—poems of witness about Appalachia, a region that has shaped him and became an obsession. Noah Davis writes about the landscape that’s been violated and how that resonates through its people. Come hear what the “short-haired girl” has to say in this beautiful and dark collection of poems.
And, she has much to say.
Sunday, January 24 @ 8pm ET
