The Abingdon community was delighted to have Wiley Cash visit with us during the the Washington County Public Library’s 20th anniversary of its successful “Sunday with Friends” literary series. Wiley held the packed-in audience spellbound for an hour and a half with his reading from “The Last Ballad,” humorous anecdotes about the ups and downs of his literary career, and especially answering many questions about his writing process, his development as a writer, etc. He is certainly a young writer to watch!

THE LAST BALLAD was very compelling and Wiley was very charismatic and engaging during his talk and question and answer session. The audience was very engaged and eager to meet him face-to-face at the book-signing segment. We would welcome him back in a heartbeat with a future publication!
Wiley was witty, insightful, and connected well with his audience. From start to finish, his approach to a very difficult topic was invitational. He did a great job of engaging a room full of diverse people with a lot at stake in the conversation. Throughout the hour, Wiley built bridges and people enjoyed meeting him on them.
