Wiley Cash - 'The Last Ballad'

We're always happy to welcome Wiley Cash back with a new book. (We'd welcome him anytime, even without a book - he's such a nice guy).  He took Southern lit by storm with his debut novel, A Land More Kind Than Home.  His sophomore effort, This Dark Road to Mercy, cemented his reputation.  Now he shares The Last Ballad on Tuesday, Oct 10, at 7 pm.  You're going to hear James Taylor's Millworker playing in your head as you read Wiley's tale, set in Depression-era NC.  A struggling millworker makes a fateful decision in the early days of labor union organizing, and its aftermath continues in her family for generations.  

Wiley will be in conversation with author, Jill McCorkle.
