Has the quarantined and socially distanced lifestyle sent you searching for good books? Would you like to discuss them and catch up with other avid readers and authors in the process? We at Western North Carolina Historical Association invite you to join us for our Lit-Café, a book discussion group with a purpose. We will meet for a short series this fall, beginning in September and running for two dates. We hope to begin a lengthier series next year in 2021 and we will announce the theme for this soon!
This November WNCHA will present the annual Thomas Wolfe Memorial Literary Award. For our fall Lit-Café, we will revisit the first award winner Wilma Dykeman’s 1955 historical work The French Broad as well as the most recent winner, Back of Beyond: A Horace Kephart Biography, co-authored by George Ellison and Janet McCue. We hope to announce this year’s winner early enough to discuss their work in November. We will host these live events via Zoom on the second Thursday each month from 2:30-3:30pm, and the recorded sessions will later be available on YouTube. This series is free for WNCHA members and available on a sliding scale of $5-15 per meeting for non-members. Won’t you join us?
