Mountaineers Are Always Free

Coffee and conversation with author Rosemary Hathaway and WVU Mountaineer

Cover of the book Mountaineers Are Always Free

The West Virginia University Mountaineer is not just a mascot—it is a symbol of West Virginia history and identity embraced throughout the Mountain State. Rosemary Hathaway, folklorist and associate professor of English in the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences, explores the spirit of the Mountaineer in her new book, Mountaineers Are Always Free.

In celebration of WVU’s annual Mountaineer Week, join us for a coffee and conversation with Hathaway and current Mountaineer Timmy Eads. Hathaway will offer an advanced reading of her book, followed by a moderated discussion between Hathaway and Eads, which will be led by English professor Mary Ann Samyn.

Mountaineers Are Always Free will be released by the WVU Press to the public in early spring of 2020.

This event is sponsored by WVU Press.
