Event

Description

Author of Gap Creek, North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame inductee Robert Morgan’s Chasing the North Star is a finalist for the Southern Book Award. Set in pre-Civil War times, the story follows a crafty teenaged runaway slave named Jonah Williams on a northward journey towards freedom, from the Carolina mountains all the way to Ithaca, New York. Along the way, Jonah’s adventures and his contacts with the people he meets might remind readers of the travels of Inman, the Civil War soldier in Charles Frazier’s Cold Mountain.

The episode also airs Thursday, June 29, 5:00 pm.
