Please join us for an evening in conversation with Wiley Cash. He’s here to tell the story behind the story of his new novel. The Last Ballad. This tale, set in 1929 rural North Carolina against the growing labor movement, pits a woman’s determination to provide for family against the burgeoning anti-union sentiment of the time. This emotional novel is told from varying points of view for an unforgettable picture of poverty, race, and labor tensions in the South.
