Augusta begins this weekend. This very popular series of summer workshops about music and crafts has been explored by a student working on her master's thesis. Brittany Hicks graduated from Appalachian State University in May of 2014. Her thesis was titled "Exploring Nostalgia for the Future: A History of the Augusta Heritage Center in Elkins, West Virginia." Just as the busy five week series kicks off, she sat down with us to find out what she learned.
