Exquisite, master storytellers Roy Blount, Jr. (Save Room for Pie) and Lee Smith (Dimestore: A Writer’s Life) share the stage and tales from their lives, involving Appalachian music, small towns, dimestores, and, of course, all kinds of ruminations on pie.

Why should you attend?

You may know Roy from Prairie Home Companion or Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me! You may have read any one of Lee’s bestselling novels or story collections. If so, you’ve probably already put this on your calendar. If not, mark your calendar now, because either way, you’re in for a treat!

“Blount is the best. He can be literate, uncouth and soulful all in one sentence.” —Garrison Keillor

“Here’s Lee Smith at her best. Dimestore is personal nonfiction, where her brilliance shines. Her wide warmth blesses everything funny about life and — here especially — everything moving and deep.” —Annie Dillard
