While we have been peddling books around Buncombe County (see previous post), we have also been busy with events here at the store. March has been roaring like a lion all month and so, just to catch you up, here are the remaining store events for the next couple of weeks.
Friday, 3/19, 6:00 PM: Lenten Author Series, Part 2, with Ken Sehested, co-pastor of the Circle of Mercy Congregation here in Asheville. Ken's book, which came out last year, is called, In the Land of the Living: Prayers Personal and Public.
Saturday, 3/20, 2:00 PM: Katherine Charron, assistant professor of history at N C State, will be here to discuss her book, Freedom's Teacher: The Life of Septima Clark. This new biography of an unjustly neglected figure in the Civil Rights movement is a major contribution to both women's history and African-American history in the second half of the Twentieth Century.
Sunday, 3/21, 3:00 PM: Nan Chase, whose previous books include Asheville: A History, and Bark House Style, will be back with her new book, Eat Your Yard, a guide to landscaping that provides not only beauty but also sustenance.
Friday, 3/26, 6:00 PM: Lenten Author Series, Part 3, with Katerina Whitley, adjunct professor at Appalachian State, and author of numerous books including Speaking for Ourselves, Speaking for Ourselves and Walking the Way of Sorrows.
And get ready to mark your calendars for April as we celebrate National Poetry Month and bring in a number of authors both locally popular and nationally known, to enrich your reading experiences and your lives.
