News Community ‘Plott Hounds’ topic of Thursdays library program

Bob Plott and one of his Plott hounds will be at the Macon County Public Library for a “Thursdays at the Library” program Aug. 15, beginning at 7 p.m.This week’s Thursdays at the Library program will feature “Touching the Face of History - the Story of the Plott Hound, North Carolina’s Official State Dog.”

The Plott bear hound is the official state dog of North Carolina and is widely recognized as one of the world's premier big game hunting hounds. The breed is unique in many ways, including its Germanic origins, distinctive appearance, fierce loyalty, tenacity, and intelligence. But it is the story of the breed that truly sets it apart from all others. And it is a story that award winning author and historian Bob Plott, the great-great-great grandson of Johannes George Plott, is uniquely qualified to tell.

Bob will be accompanied by one of his Plott hounds. Visit bobplott.com for more information.

The program will begin at 7 p.m. on Aug. 17 in the library meeting room.

This project is made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council; a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

For more information, call the library at (828)524-3600.
