“Cedar Grove” radio documentary to explore work of WV writer Mary Lee Settle

We hear them tell their stories, each with a nuanced perspective of the land and its past. The geography and history of Cedar Grove is recounted in their words. Vivid scenes from Addie, read aloud by a voice actor; short segments of Settle’s interviews from 1944-1991; ambient field recordings from the Kanawha Valley; and an original score play underneath and alongside the women’s memories and descriptions of home. The resulting mix gives us access to a compelling narrative of feminine power, struggle, and identity in an Appalachian context.
