We will be having author Sharyn McCrumb come to give a booktalk on her new book and to share how she weaves local culture into her novels. She states on her website that she thinks of her books "like Appalachian quilts. I take brightly colored scraps of legends, ballads, fragments of rural life, and local tragedy, and I piece them together...." (http://www.sharynmccrumb.com/bio.html). In addition to Ms. McCrumb, the program will feature a local bluegrass band, Highgrass, and the day will include other cultural, family-friendly activities. BACK TO ALL EVENTS
