Scribe by Alyson HagyIn a future Appalachia ruined by civil war and contagion, a woman ekes our her living by writing letters for the migrants who pass by her homestead. This haunting fable about the redeeming power of story, of owning one’s story, and of taking the time to tell another’s story with bold-faced honesty and empathy will get under your skin. This is not a pleasant tale, but an important one in the time of "fake news" and "would" and "wouldn’t."
