The ABC is a nonprofit publisher and literary event company based in eastern Kentucky. We started in 2017 as a book club. Our first meeting was at a McDonald’s in Pikeville, KY.

Since then we've held book swaps and writing workshops. We produced a storytelling event called Porch Talk, and attended Hillbilly Days 2022. Interested in collaborating? Give us a holler.
