The History of All Places: A Discussion of Identity and Belonging

As a twelfth-generation North Carolinian, David Joy understands well what it means to be rooted to place. For five novels, his work has been centered very specifically in the mountains of Jackson County, North Carolina where he writes on themes of family and culture, identity and loss. View the conversation between Joy and AMY Regional Library Director Amber Westall Briggs as they take a deep dive into place, identity, belonging and more in an attempt to better understand our relationships with the mountains we hold so dear. What does it mean to belong to a land? And how do we hold onto ourselves when the ground that defines us shifts beneath our feet?
