The purpose of the Weakley County Arts and Humanities Council since its founding in 1999 has been to contribute to the cultural life of persons residing in Weakley County. WCAHC has initiated numerous community and educational programs focusing on the visual, literary and performing arts. Two of these programs, Literary Readings at the Soybean Festival and Creative Arts Day with poet Bill Brown, resulted in original writings generated by members of our community. These writings have been compiled and now form the basis for the first Obion River Anthology.

Funds from the sale of this volume are for the promotion of arts in Weakley County, especially among school children.
