City Lights Events in Sylva, NC

I receive the listing of events from City Lights Books in Sylva NC only a few miles over the mountains from where I live. The bookstore is one of the best Independent Book stores around. If you can't find the book you want there, but you likely will, they can order it for you. You can order online. Just visit their website. Chris and his staff welcome our writers and support local writers. They hold Coffee with the Poet on the third Thursday of the month at 10:30 AM. Their guests are poets and prose writers.
Contact Chris at City Light ( ) to learn more about this event. Perhaps you could be the featured guest.

Excerpt from Newsletter:
Join us Saturday, November 19th at 2 p.m. as we celebrate the new edition of Camping and Woodcraft by Horace Kephart. Included in the new edition are over 40 historic photgraphs taken by Kephart and George Masa. Many of these images were recently discovered and never before published. Also included is a wonderful new cover image featuring the work of Elizabeth Ellison and an 80-page introduction by Kephart scholars George Ellison and Janet McCue.

Local historian George Frizzell will join George and Elizabeth Ellison for the celebration at City Lights.

Are You Lucky Enough to Have an Indie Book Store Near YOU?

Tonight I took time to browse around the web and clicked on the Indie Bound site. If you haven't been there, I hope you will visit. We have so many wonderful independent bookstores but we are gradually losing them because of the large chains, but mostly because of

Lindy Ray, middle, hosts ladies from Candy Fund at her independent book store, Curiosity Books in Murphy, NC.

I took the time, tonight,  to read and understand Indie Bound and I became a part of their community. Books can be ordered from Indie book stores, online just as you would order from And it was so easy to see some of the great new books on the lists given. I made a wish list immediately, which you can do on the site, and I plan to get the books I want either from a local store like Curiosity Books in Murphy,  46 Valley River Avenue, Murphy, NC 28906  or City Lights in Sylva. If you go  to the City Lights website, you can find all the books you want and can order right off their site.

On my sidebar, you will see one of the reasons I think  it is smart to shop from your Indie bookstores. I hope you will visit one in your neighborhood soon. If you don't know of one, go to the Indie Bound site and check out their map to find stores near you.
