The Jesse Stuart Foundation preserves the human and literary legacy of one of America’s most popular and influential writers. We keep Stuart’s books in print while also advancing the works of other Kentucky and Appalachian writers. With support from our friends, the JSF makes important literature available to several generations of readers. We are asking our friends to help us reprint five books in 2023. In these books, children and adults learn valuable lessons about Appalachian life, history, and culture:
