Author Valerie Nieman

Valerie Nieman is a professor of English at North Carolina A&T State University. A former journalist and farmer in West Virginia, she is the author of three novels, as well as collections of poetry and short fiction. She is a graduate of West Virginia University, and she received an MFA from Queens University of Charlotte.

We'll be discussing Nieman's latest novel, TO THE BONES, which is original and creepy and compelling. Valerie manages to weave a page-turner from a pile of bones, a family of evil coal barons, a mother desperate to find her daughter, and a government inspector who's literally lost his way. It's a thrilling read to be sure, but it also includes serious treatment of the disappearing jobs and ecological malfeasance in modern day Appalachia.
