How I Found Belt
I went on tour with Anne after Belt magazine published an essay of mine. It was fun. I met many great Rust Belt writers, and had an awkward panel discussion with Thomas Frank. I am a Belt Book Club member and author/editor.
Both of Elizabeth Catte's books (Pure America and What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia) are great, and exemplify the type of subversive stories I enjoy by Belt authors. Specifically those that do not play into the aggrieved laid off factory worker turned white nationalist trope.
