Smart Bets: Charles Frazier

Asheville native Charles Frazier is probably best known as the author of Cold Mountain. His newest novel, Nightwoods, is also set in the Appalachian mountains — though instead of the post-Civil War era, that work of love and suspense is set in the early 1960s. Frazier is the second author to appear as part of UNC-Asheville's Southern Writers series. (Upcoming authors include Wayne Caldwell on July 15, Ron Rash on July 22 and Erica Abrams Locklear on July 29). Frazier will speak on Sunday, July 8 at 3 p.m. at UNC Asheville’s Reuter Center. The event is free and open to the public, but it is limited to 200 ticket holders. Tickets are available at the Reuter Center. At press time, all 200 tickets were gone, but there’s still a chance to get in if some don’t show up by 2:45 p.m. Sunday.
