Thanks to my friends at Indy WordLab, I’m giving the first public reading of So Far Appalachia: A Memoir of American Mythology at Indy Reads Books.

I’ve been working on the tone and style for the last few months, and it’s finally starting to come together. This is the last rough draft before Part I goes into the drawer and Part II gets written. You can listen to my final reading prep before I headed up on stage.

This is the “Introduction” and “Chapter 1: The Road to Beaumont”.
