James Still

Carol Boggess

University Press of Kentucky

The epilogue describes James Still’s funeral in Hindman as a gathering of family, friends, and admirers to celebrate Still’s life and honor his literary accomplishments. Emanating from the hills of eastern Kentucky, news of his death spread through the region and the nation. This section documents Still’s posthumous honors and awards that helped establish his literary legacy and discusses publications by and about him that began appearing in 2001. Ted Olson edited Still’s poems and his stories and collected two volumes of critical essays and interviews. Still’s literary executors, Silas House, and University Press of Kentucky edited and published his novel Chinaberry in 2011.
