In honor of the upcoming 10th anniversary of the Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship Program, In Good Keeping is available for purchase through the University of Virginia Bookstore at a special discount.
Told in the voice of the master artists from the first five years of the Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship program, In Good Keeping pairs Morgan Miller’s photographs and State Folklorist Jon Lohman’s reflective text to showcase a wide range of folk traditions and master practitioners — from canning to decoy carving, from bluegrass fiddling to steel drum making. This book rewards readers who are familiar with Virginia’s traditional arts and newcomers alike, while reaffirming the importance of passing these cherished traditions on to future generations.
From now through the month of June, In Good Keeping can be purchased for the discounted price of $19.50, plus tax and shipping, a 50-percent savings. Use the discount code “folklife” and order a copy of In Good Keeping now from The VFH Store.
