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 ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) 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.

So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca
