Abingdon, Virginia

September 22

I'm writing this from the Quality Inn in Abingdon, Virginia. This is beautiful rolling country, the long, long I-81 valley that runs from Wilkesbarre PA down through Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, and Tennessee. On to North Carolina? I'm here for the Appalachian Writers Festival , and we've got Fred Chappelle and Lee Smith (and Robert Morgan and Sharyn McCrumb) coming and Phyllis is here and I had dinner with Karen Morgan, that was intense, and David Huddle and his wife brought me home and breakfast today with the Dancing with God poet and George and Connie and George Ella and Joyce Dyer and Maggie-- oh this could turn into a list fast.
