A Happy Holiday Note

We here at Appalachia Bare hope the holiday season brought everyone warmth and togetherness. We wish all our readers, subscribers, and submitters a healthy, happy, safe New Year.

Appalachia Bare will take a brief hiatus and will return January 18, 2022. We’ll use this time to perform a little website maintenance and to strategize for new content. Our goal is to (hopefully) bring better reading and viewing experiences.
