Native Americans have occupied the mountains of northwestern North Carolina for a round 14\,000 years. This book tells the story of their lives\, adaptations \, responses to climate change\, and ultimately\, the devastation brought o n by encounters with Europeans. After a brief introduction to archaeology\, the book covers each time period\, chapter by chapter\, beginning with the Paleoindian period in the Ice Age and ending with the arrival of Daniel Bo one in 1769\, with descriptions and interpretations of archaeological evide nce for each time period. Each chapter begins with a fictional vignette to kindle the reader's imaginings of ancient human life in the mountains\, and includes descriptions and numerous images of sites and artifacts discovere d in Boone\, North Carolina\, and the surrounding region.

Nestled in an Appalachian stream valley\, the Town of\nBoone was initially little more t han a sleepy\, ramshackle county seat\, prompting one 1888\nvisitor to desc ribe it as “a God-forsaken place.” In 1899\, the founding of the Watauga\nA cademy (today’s Appalachian State University) began a long history of syner gy and\noccasional friction between town and gown. The 1918 arrival of the Linville River Railway\nlaunched the “Watch Boone Grow” campaign\, turning Boone into a thriving commercial\ncenter. After World War II\, improved roa dways\, cheap automobiles\, and the nearby Blue\nRidge Parkway made Boone a mountain tourism hub. The confluence of these forces—\nhigher education\, mountain tourism\, and a commercial economy—has sometimes\nthreatened Boone ’s identity\, but Boone’s reputation as an idyllic escape nevertheless\nend ures.\n\nDr. Eric W. Plaag is the chairperson of the Digital Watauga Projec t\, an initiative of the Watauga County Historical Society and the Watauga County Public Library. In celebration of Boone’s 150th anniversary\, Dr. Pl aag narrates Boone’s fascinating historical evolution from the 1870s to the present using selected images from Digital Watauga’s extensive collections .\n\nThis event will take place at the Jones House LAST-MODIFIED:20211101T150400Z LOCATION: SEQUENCE:0 STATUS:CONFIRMED SUMMARY:Remembering Boone: Book Talk & Signing @ the Jones House TRANSP:OPAQUE END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART:20211109T193000Z DTEND:20211109T220000Z DTSTAMP:20220522T113400Z UID:5ct1drjmntfh539ouatfuh8jc3@google.com CREATED:20211101T144212Z DESCRIPTION:

Yet barely one percent of t he nation’s housing supply contains any “universal design” elements — such as single story living or a sink that can be reached from a wheelchair.

AARP's One Day University Lecture Series presents: A Culinary History of America


Reserve a table wi th award-winning professor Allen Pietrobon as we eat our way (intellectuall y\, of course) through a culinary history of the United States. We’ll sampl e the world-famous American restaurants of the 1890s\, then trudge through the Great Depression to see how it affected American cuisine. We’ll see how World War Two radically changed American eating habits and then we’ll push a wonky-wheeled shopping cart through the 1950s “dark ages” of American cu isine\, with its cavernous supermarkets peddling frozen TV dinners and Jell -O salads. Ultimately\, we’ll see that what Americans were eating over the decades had a major impact on American society\, culture\, and family time.  \;


Professor& nbsp\;Pietrobon \;will participate in a LIVE Q&\;A imme diately following the pre-recorded lecture. \;This event is FRE E but you must REGISTER to participate.

Bring broken or torn items to a Repair Hub pop up instead o f throwing them away. Participants will be paired with a qualified voluntee r that will help them fix their item. Attendees will go home with a repaire d item and a new skill.

Reparations in December will include cos tume jewelry (clasps and restringing)\, clothing (mending)\, wooden cutting boards and spoons (refurbishing)\, knives (sharpening)\, and lamps and ele ctrical cord repairs (bring your own plug\, wire and socket if needed).

The Repair Hub in October resulted in 98 pounds of material kept out of the landfill. There was a steady stream of participants and 43 items were f ixed. The December pop-up will have even more volunteers to help with repai rs.

The director and founder of Repair Hub is Andy Groothuis\, who le arned the art of repair from his grandfather. This knowledge and a commitme nt to keep items out of landfills has helped formulate this community- base d nonprofit. For more information or to learn more\, contact Andy at (828) 773-6530 or email repairhuborg@ gmail.com.

He performs over 100 concerts a year\, and his record ings on the Centaur Records and Towerhill Recordings labels have been criti cally acclaimed.\nPeter offers an audience friendly\, solo recital includin g repertoire that runs the gamut from the Renaissance Period through the 20 th Century.\nHis current recital program features Jesu\, Joy of Man’s Desir ing and Lute Suite No. 1 by J. S. Bach\, Paganini’s ever popular Caprice No . 24\, the fiendishly difficult Five Bagatelles by British composer William Walton\, and Recuerdos de la Alhambra\, a great favorite among audiences\, by Spanish composer Francisco Tarrega. In addition\, Peter will perform a very special solo version of Vivaldi’s Concerto in D Major\, and four prelu des\, which were dedicated to Segovia\, by Mexican composer Manuel Ponce\,\ nThe concert will culminate with Isaac Albeniz’s Rumores de la Caleta\, one of the most exciting Spanish works in the classical guitar repertoire.\nPe ter’s solo recital in 2017\, at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York C ity\, was extremely well received by William Gooch for Fashion Reverie:\n“A s a mature artist\, Fletcher stands out in his emotional interpretation of the works he performs. And this is particularly apparent in the less pyrote chnical pieces in his repertoire. Though the more virtuosic works get pulse s racing\, the gentler works give room for reflection and in Fletcher’s cor ner demonstrate more accurately his craft and technical nuance.

“Kirk Abner's life was normal. Aspira tional\, even. His childhood was enjoyable. His parents were loving and suc cessful. he attended private school\, and by the time he finished college\, some of his work was recognized by President Ronald Reagan. But what looke d like happiness on paper couldn't be further from the truth. By the time K irk turned forty-one-years old\, he was overwhelmed. Life was not what he h oped it would be. Disappointments led to frustration which fueled anger. Af ter months of the same\, it turned to depression. Finally\, he had become s uicidal.

While Kirk courageously persevered from a state of despair to overcome his suicidal depression\, his experience begs the question: How does a person with a strong and healthy upbringing reach such a drastic co nclusion - to commit suicide?

Kirk confronts this critical question in ‘Flower Dog Man’ - and offers compelling answers that can strengthen any person's resolve to live\, and live meaningfully.”

Kirkus Reviews c alls the book "(a) philosophical manifesto explores the meaning of human li fe\," and deemed it "a welcome antidote to the anxiety-inducing tensions of the everyday world ... a lifetime of precisely distilled experiences exper tly concentrated."

2019 marks the 100th anniversary of regular passenger and freight servi ce to Boone on the Linville River Railway. The train service to Boone ended after the devastating 1940 Flood\, but Boone would not be what it is today without the Linville River Railway. The railway\, which first rolled into Boone in 1919\, served the community for 20 years. The Linville River Railw ay\, more commonly known as Tweetsie by locals\, provided reliable access t o Watauga County and Boone. Before the railway\, roads in the northwestern corner of North Carolina were infamous for their rough and unreliable condi tions\, and many local roads mainly served exclusively as wagon trails. The Linville River Railway provided Boone and Watauga County with the first re liable transportation method for moving freight in and out of the region\, which proved to be influential in changing the landscape of the town. Join the Town of Boone in commemorating the Linville River Railway with a series of free events for the entire family to learn about the train's importance to Boone.
The event kicks off at the Watauga County Public Library w ith train-themed crafts for kids at 4:00 PM on Friday\, May 3. Followin g the arts and crafts program\, the Watauga County Public Library will host a presentation with Eric Plaag called “When the Linville River Railway Came to Town.” There will also be a screening of the film “Take a Ri de Inside the Linville River Railway.” The film will show footage of th e train’s route between Boone and Shull’s Mills in the 1930s. Light refresh ments will be provided. Following the presentation and video\, take a fr ee walking tour through downtown Boone at 6:30 PM. The tour will focus on “Watch Boone Grow\,” a construction campaign of the early 1920s. In addi tion\, the walking tour will also feature key buildings in downtown Boone\, which were erected between 1920 and 1940 as a direct result of the Linvill e River Railway. The walking tour will depart from the Watauga County Publi c Library and is weather permitting.The celebration of the Linville River R ailway 100th anniversary is hosted by the Town of Boone’s Historic Preserva tion Commission and Cultural Resources Department\, the Downtown Boone Deve lopment Association\, and the Watauga County Public Library.

Treeborne is a story of Elberta\, Alabama in the y ears from the late 1950s to today. It revolves around the life of Janie Tre eborne and those in this sometimes mystical\, sometimes sordid\, time and p lace. Janie’s grandfather Hugh Treeborne makes “assemblies\,” artworks from found objects and natural materials and his creation Crusoe may have achie ved consciousness. The sudden death of Hugh’s widow Maybelle creates chaos in the town and especially for her lover Lee Malone\, a black man who was H ugh’s best friend. Then there’s the time Janie orchestrates the kidnapping of her Hollywood-obsessed Aunt Tammie and spends months on the run at only thirteen years old.
Caleb Johnson grew up in Arley\, AL\, studied journ alism at The University of Alabama and earned an M.F.A. in creative writing from the University of Wyoming. His writing is forthcoming or can be found in Southern Living\, The Paris Review Daily\, Literary Hub\, The Bitter So utherner\, and other publications\, and he has been awarded a Jentel Writin g Residency\, and a Walter E. Dakin Fellowship in fiction to the Sewanee Wr iters' Conference. Prior to joining the faculty at Appalachian State Univer sity\, Johnson worked as a newspaper reporter\, a janitor\, a non-profit ad ministrator\, a middle-school teacher\, and a whole-animal butcher\, among other jobs.

Pan’s Labyrinth\, by Guillermo del Toro. (2006\, 1 hour and 58 minutes).

Suggested MPAA Rating: Rat ed R for Strong\, Graphic Violence\, Language\, and some Grotesque Images.< br>

 \;“The civil war\, which has never completely healed in Spa in\, is a ghost. Anything pending is a ghost.” So says Guillermo del Toro a bout the Spanish Civil War \, which was one of history’s bloodiest conflict s\, claiming 610\,000 lives\, causing 450\,000 people to flee the country. Ending in 1939\, it was overshadowed in the global mindset by the start of WWII\, which occurred only 5 months after the end of the Spanish war. Del T oro has thus\, decided to make three films to engage\, and inspect this sen sitive topic\, considering the danger of forgetting one’s own past\, and on e’s nation’s past.

In Pan’s Labyrinth\, a dark fairy t ale unfolds around the life of Ophelia\, who travels with her mother to a r emote farmhouse turned headquarters for the fascist military. It takes plac e after the war has ended\, while guerilla resistance still lingers in the fringes of society. Capitan Vidal\, Ophelia’s new stepfather\, vehemently r esists any narrative that does not align with the ideology of the new gover nment\, his version of reality. For the Ophelia\, the world to which Vidal clings is merely a foreground upon which her fairy tale plays out.
These are both stories\, one a masculine\, fraternal story about guilt\, repress ion and death\, the other a feminine\, sisterly tale about fear\, lonelines s and defiance.
Although the Spanish Civil War began centuries after th e Conquest of the Americas\, its history\, and the history of its repressio n is one echoed across the Hispanic world.

Part of the Library's celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Parents or legal guardi ans are responsible for accompanying minors to this movie showing\, which i s rated 'R'.

Presented by Watauga County Public Library\ , High Country Lifelong Learners\, and the Road Scholar program of the Nort h Carolina Humanities Council (http://www.nchumanities.org/).


Southern stories are more than tangled tales of honeysuckle and kudzu. The thirteen states that comprise the Old South have collectively p roduced some of the nation’s finest writers and the past century’s most hon ored books.

While some insist that “authentic” Southern stories must include a dead mule\, Tamra Wilson begs to differ. In this presentation sh e will share from her own research the six essentials that define Southern fiction and memoir. You’ll never look at Southern literature quite the same way again.

Mark Powell will be the featured spea ker at the regular meeting of the High Country Writers at the Watauga Count y Public Library on Thursday\, July 12\, 2018\, at 10:00 am. The program i s free and open to the public.
 \;
Powell\, an assistant professo r teaching creative writing and contemporary fiction at ASU\, is an award-w inning novelist who was called the "best Appalachian novelist of his genera tion" by New York Times bestselling author Ron Rash and a writer "on the ve rge of greatness" by Pat Conroy. He is the author of five novels\, includin g his most recent\, Small Treasons from Simon &\; Schuster. His novel Bl ood Kin won the Peter Taylor Prize for the Novel. The Sheltering (with an i ntroduction by Pat Conroy) won the bronze medal for both the Independent Pu blishers Award and the Florida Book Awards. In 2009 he received the Chaffin Award for contributions to Appalachian literature.


Powell has m oved Southern fiction right into this morning’s headlines. He is a graduat e of The Citadel\, although he never joined the military\, and a graduate o f The Yale School of Divinity\, although he did not become a clergyman. In Small Treasons he brings his diverse education to bear\, both in his convin cing descriptions of drone piloting and intelligence gathering and even mor e in his depiction of the corrosive effects of sin and guilt on the human p syche.


Powell is writing his sixth novel. He draws much inspira tion for his novels from his real life experiences. “I think all writers do \,” Powell said. “All writers\, whether they admit it or not\; it’s the wor ld they experience filtered through. It may not be consciously the world in which you live\, but certainly it seeps into it. Writing is a response\, a way to make sense of your life.”


High Country Writers has been “energizing writers since 1995.” Regular meetings are at the Watauga Coun ty Public Library on the second and fourth Thursdays of most months from 10 am to noon\, and speakers’ presentations are co-sponsored by the library. HCW members present writing / publishing skills workshops from 10 am to no on the first Thursday of most months\, partnering with Watauga County Arts Council to offer them at Art Space. Guests are welcome. Membership is $15 annually.

A bout the Author

 \; \; \; \; While I was an old sculptor who had to quit before it killed me\, now I am a new author. My fi rst book\, Beats Me\, Love\, Poetry\, Censorship from Chicago to Appalachia was a valentine for my late husband\, Paul Carroll. It told of our love an d his historic win against censorship in 1960. It won designation as a '100 Notable 2015 Indie Book' from Shelf Unbound Magazine.
 \; \;&n bsp\; \; In February 2016\, I had the esteemed privilege of interviewin g my husband's old pal\, Lawrence Ferlinghetti for a documentary being made about Paul. He\, Lawrence\, and Barnie Rosset were the three publishers wh o successfully fought censorship of books
 \; \; \; \; I first began to write poems in the Spring of 2016\, after finishing my boo k. Not knowing if my first poem warranted consideration I emailed Pulitzer Poet\, Stephen Dunn\, on Memorial Day and he responded that he thought 'Son g for a Dead Lover' was a wonderful poem.

BRAIN GYM® FOR HIGH COUNTRY WRITERS WORKSHOP June 7th 2018 to be taught by Mary Gray and Elizabeth Percival.
Brain Gym® is a discipline created by Paul E. Dennison and his wife\, Gail E. Dennison. It is part of the Educational Kinesiology System pioneered and developed by the Dennisons . The slogan of Brain Gym® is that “Movement is the door to learning.” It c an be a particular help to writers who have to spend a lot of time sitting down when writing or researching.
The program is based on twenty-six sim ple movements that improve mind-body coordination so that it becomes easier to learn\, to create\, to relate to others\, achieve your goals and feel g ood about yourself. These exercises will help you to have more energy when it is needed and engage both hemispheres of your brain so that they can wor k together as they are meant to. These movements will help you organize you r work and increase your powers of focusing. They can help you move out of “writer's block” and those “stuck places” that most writers struggle with. It is useful to all ages and especially helpful for those who have learning challenges.
Many of the movements can be done sitting down. Please wear comfortable loose clothing and bring a bottle of water.
Mary and Elizab eth trained in and have practiced Brain Gym® for over twenty years. You can find more about Brain Gym® at the websites <\;braingym.org>\; and <\ ;heartsatplay.org>\;. We will bring a selection of books to display and w ill have some for sale. The workshop will take place at the Watauga Libray meeting room\, not at Artspace. We look forward to sharing more about this extraordinary work with you.

Location: Watauga County Public Library - Storytime Steps

From birth\, parents instinctively use music to cal m and soothe children\, to express their love and joy\, and to engage and i nteract. Parents can build on these natural instincts by learning how music can impact child development\, improve social skills\, and benefit kids of all ages.

Music is used as a memory aid for many older studen ts because it takes several discrete pieces of information and combines the m into one larger piece of information – a song. Processing that one piece of information is much easier than processing a long list. Therefore\, musi c is an important aspect of learning. Music and movement classes develop th e innate understanding of music in children\, which enables them to tap int o this aspect of music later on in life.

Join Susan Rivers\, author of the Civil-War era novel The Second Mrs. Hockaday\, for an author visit and presentation of her book.

Rivers' debut novel\, The Second Mrs. Hockada y \,published by Algonquin Books\, was a People Magazine "Best New Book s Pick\," a Woman's Day "Editor's Desk Pick" in 2017\, an Indie Next\, Libr ary Reads and SIBA Winter OKRA Pick and was selected by the online pu blication\, BookBrowse\, as one of The Best Books for Book Clubs in 2018. The novel was a finalist for The Center for Fiction First Novel Prize 2017.

People Magazine called it "suspense ful and satisfying\,"Woman's Day described it as a "page-turner…meticulousl y researched and beautifully written\," Kirkus characterized it as "a compu lsively readable work" and the Charlotte Observer called it"spellbinding." Booklist\, which gave the novel a starred review\,wrote that "this galvaniz ing historical portrait of courage \,determination and abiding love mesmeri zes and shocks."

Inspired by a true incident\, this nove l takes place at the conclusion of the American Civil War\, when a young so ldier's wife in South Carolina goes on trial for murdering an infant she bo re while her husband was far away\, fighting with Lee's army. Placidia Hock aday\, the protagonist\, struggles with the unraveling of the social order in her Southern homeland even as her views on race and family are transform ed. A love story\, a story of racial divide\, and a story of the South as i t fell in the war\, The Second Mrs. Hockaday reveals how that genera tion -- and the next -- began to see their world anew.

Rivers began her writing career as a playwright\, receiving the Julie Harri s Playwriting Award and the New York Drama League Award\, working as an NEA Writer-in-Residence in San Francisco\, and being named as a finalist for t he Susan Smith Blackburn Award for British and American Women Playwrights.

Fiction became her focus after moving to the Carolinas in 1995. \; She holds an MFA in Fiction-writing from Queens University of Charlotte in North Carolina and was awarded a Regional Artist Grant from the Arts and Sciences Council there.

The author lives w ith her husband in a former cotton-mill town in upstate South Carolina\, wh ere stories and stray animals are thick on the ground. None are turned away .

 \ ;While the entire country was in the throes of the American Civil War\, the region of western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee was embroiled in it s own very personal and bloody conflict. No individual better personifies t he brutal nature of this theater of the war than does Colonel George&nbs p\;W. Kirk. For two and a half years\, he led a "notorious band of scoundre ls and thieves" \; across the mountain region engaging in often vicious acts of violence that were not always sanctioned by his Union Army superio rs. \; Award-winning historian Michael C. Hardy chronicles the war alon g the Tennessee-North Carolina border\, a war marked by strife within famil ies and communities\, George W. Kirk's war. For those wanting to go beyond the highway markers\, "Kirk's Civil War Raids along the Blue Ridge" is an e xcellent place to start."--Wat auga Democrat \;

Michael C. Hardy has a passion for nineteenth-century Southern history. He is conside red the "nation’s foremost author on the Confederate Soldier\," and his wri ting "adds flesh to the vast gaps in the official Confederate records." Mic hael has penned twenty-three books\, including two new releases for 2018:General Lee's Immortals\, a history of the Branch-Lane Brigade (Savas Beatie) andKirk's Civil War Raids along the Blue Ridge (His tory Press). His articles have appeared in numerous magazines\, and Michael was featured in the recentBlo od and Fury: America's Civil War on the American Heroes Channel. In 2010\, Michael was named the North Carolina Historian of the Year by the North Carolina Society of Histo rians. He is a graduate of the University of Alabama\, and since 1995\, has called western North Carolina home.
