For updates on Talley's tour, follow her blogs on her website. (Sharp's impressions are here.) She also promises to make her way back to to WNC on a regular basis. "My roots are so deep in Asheville," she writes. "I'll be back probably once a month or so until we start really expanding our horizons."
