Nantahala native and Franklin resident, Roy Owenby will share his stories about Appalachian life on Saturday, Aug. 2, at 3 p.m. Blue Ridge Mountain Heritage is the culmination of thousands of miles of travel throughout the South in an effort to gather stories that portray the soul of Appalachia. These stories span past and present and offer a full spectrum of human emotion.
A prolific writer, Owenby has written hundreds of articles and short stories. He is also the author of “The Owl Knows,” a mystery set on the Appalachian Trail. To reserve copies of his books, call City Lights Bookstore at (828)586-9499.
