Back by popular demand, the Blowing Rock Art & History Museum is again hosting an “Eat Your Words” book luncheon. The luncheon will feature a catered meal and a lively discussion of Barbara Kingsolver’s book Flight Behavior. Dr. Hepsie Roskelly, professor of English at UNC-Greensboro, who led the discussion at last year’s event, will again provide insight and thought-provoking questions and comments.
Kingsolver, known for her New York Times bestselling books such as The Poisonwood Bible, and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, draws on her Appalachian roots in Flight Behavior. The suspenseful novel is set in rural Tennessee and has received impressive reviews nationwide.
The luncheon will be held Friday, September 13 at 12 pm in the Community Meeting Room. The cost is $40/person. Space is limited and advance registration is required. To reserve your seat, please call 828-295-9099 by September 10.
