About Postcards From Madison County

Each year, the Partnership for Appalachian Girls’ Education, or PAGE, provides out-of-school learning opportunities for girls in grades six through nine.

This summer, the PAGE program gave girls a forum for telling—and recording--stories from their own lives. Their narratives are snapshots of everyday life, local culture, and family relationships in the mountains—through the eyes of a young person.
