The works of one of Kentucky’s leading literary figures is put to the ultimate test: critical reviews by peers. We talk with the editor of the forthcoming University Press of Kentucky release:  Silas House: Exploring an Appalachian Writer's Work. Silas House has also been in the studio to record a duet with Nashville singer-songwriter Tiffany Williams, who joins us. And we hear about all of this from Silas House himself. Plus, another well-known Kentucky writer: Frank X Walker, talks with Tom Eblen about the times and how the forces in play in 2020 have influenced his work.
