Kirby Gannís work gained national attention in the early 2000s, and his voice continues to help shape the contemporary novel. See how the Louisville writer lives and works in this Louisville Life segment.

Kirby Gannís interview is an excerpt from the Kentucky Muse documentary Kentucky Muse celebrates the world of creative output and spirit found within the Bluegrass state.
