Cancelled: Wes Browne presents Hillbilly Hustle, in conversation with Ronni Lundy

* Because authors may have to change travel plans due to Covid-19, please call or check this listing before attending this event. We will post updates immediately if there are any changes to our scheduled events. 

Knox Thompson thinks he’s working a hustle, but it’s a hustle that’s working him. Trying to keep his pizza shop and parents afloat, he cleans out a backroom Kentucky poker game only to be roped into dealing marijuana by the proprietor—an arrangement Knox only halfheartedly resists. Knox’s shop makes the perfect front for a marijuana operation, but his supplier turns out to be violent and calculating, and Knox ends up under his thumb. It’s not long before more than just the pizza shop is at risk.

Wesley Browne is the founder and host of Pages & Pints Reading Series at Apollo Pizza in Richmond, Kentucky. He lives with his wife and two sons in Madison County, where he practices law, co-owns and helps manage local restaurants and a music venue, and coaches sports. This is his debut book. He will be in conversation with Ronni Lundy, author of Victuals: An Appalachian Journey, with Recipes.
