“Cold Mountain” author to speak at UNCA Reuter Center on July 8

From the press release from UNC Asheville News Services:

Charles Frazier, author of “Cold Mountain” and other novels, will speak at 3 p.m. Sunday, July 8, as part of a new series of talks by great Southern writers at UNC Asheville’s Reuter Center. The series is free and open to the public, and will feature 3 p.m. author talks every Sunday afternoon in July.

Seating for each of these five events is now limited to 200 ticket-holders. Some 100 tickets will be made available to the general public beginning Wednesday, June 27, at UNC Asheville’s Reuter Center. Reserved seating for ticket-holders will be held up to 15 minutes before each event, after which seating will be opened.

Frazier, a native of Asheville, gained fame with his novel “Cold Mountain” (Atlantic Monthly Press, 1997), which won the National Book Award for Fiction and was adapted into an award-winning, critically-acclaimed film that was also a box-office success. In Frazier’s writing, place and time are as central as character and plot. His subsequent novels, “Thirteen Moons” (Random House, 2006) and “Nightwoods,” (Random House, 2011) are also set in the Appalachian Mountains.

The full series schedule is:
Tommy Hays, July 1
Charles Frazier, July 8
Wayne Caldwell, July 15
Ron Rash, July 22
Erica Abrams Locklear, July 29

The summer author series is produced by the Appalachian Studies Program of College for Seniors at UNC Asheville’s N.C. Center for Creative Retirement. For more information, visit the center’s website or call 828/251-6140.
