Southern Storytellers Series: Lee Woods

April 25 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $18

Tickets for the 6pm event are $18 for adults, $10 for students, $23 at the door and include dinner.

Woods is a descendant of families who lived in Hazel Creek, a community now both submerged by Lake Fontana and absorbed within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. She’ll talk about the rich legacy of towns lost and people displaced she so vividly captures in her books.

Hosted by Folkmoot and co-sponsored by Blue Ridge Books, the Haywood County Public Library and the Smoky Mountain News, the Southern Storytellers Series brings southern culture and our region’s authors and musicians together for a unique night of food, fun and discussion. An educational exhibit, provided by WCU Mountain Heritage Center explores Decoration Day, a tradition throughout the region, with special focus on the North Shore of Fontana Lake in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The ticket price for each event includes a unique southern-themed meal.
