Smart Bets: Permanent Camp

Naturalist George Ellison chronicles over 30 years of his life, marriage, family and work as a writer — all while living on the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The resulting book, Permanent Camp: Poems, Narratives and Renderings from the Smokies, includes poetry and prose along with water color landscapes by Ellison's wife, Elizabeth. Writing samples can be found at Ellison's web site (, or you can just hear the author read from his own work at Malaprop's on Friday, July 13 at 7 p.m.
