Evan Williams: Appalachian author

Bar Crawl Radio travelled to Henderson County, in western North Carolina to talk with author and apple grower, Evan Williams, whose family has resided in the Blue Ridge Mountains since before the Revolutionary War. His writing abides within the people and culture of small town Appalachia. From Evan’s website -- “Surrounded by orchard, and writing from within a former apple storage shed, converted to dwelling, Evan inhabits the family compound along with a smattering of his adult, married children, several rescue pets, and a growing number of grandchildren.”

This conversation was recorded in the Triskelion Brewing Company in Hendersonville North Carolina. We talked about southern-style, small town religion, the mysteries of apple-growing, the "new" south, and Evan's recently published book "Ripples."
