Book Nook: The Killing Hills by Chris Offutt

Vick Mickunas' 2021 interview with Chris Offutt

Chris Offutt returned to the program after a long hiatus. Chris has never stopped writing books, I just had not been able to schedule another interview until now. The last time Chris appeared on the show it was to talk about a memoir. That was almost 20 years ago.

It was worth the wait. Chris just published a crime novel, "The Killing Hills," set in a locale that he knows very well, eastern Kentucky, where he grew up. This book is quite a page turner and I was pleased to learn during our conversation that Chris has decided to turn this into a series and he's already hard at work on the next installments.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library, Clark County Public Library, Dayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.

Vick Mickunas introduced the Book Nook author interview program for WYSO in 1994. Over the years he has produced more than 1500 interviews with writers, musicians, poets, politicians, and celebrities.
