“There is so much to learn about Appalachia,” noted Dr. Lydia Rose, organizer of the fair and associate professor of sociology on the East Liverpool Campus. “Some of the best examples of American experiences of innovation, rebellion and social change are rooted in Appalachia.”

The fair will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is open to the public.

For additional information, contact Dr. Rose at lrose17@kent.edu or at 330-382-7572.
