Feeding bears (intentionally or unintentionally) trains them to approach homes and people for more food. Bears will defend themselves when they get too close to people so don’t risk your safety and theirs! Bear Safety Tips
CULLOWHEE—In 2013, we held the Squire Summer Writing Residency at Western Carolina University, where Kathryn Stripling Byer taught for so many years, and she led the poetry workshop at the Residency that weekend.
WCU was a welcoming host and venue, with one exception: in the building where we slept and took our classes, the air conditioning was stuck on overdrive, and we were freezing.
And then, after our first lunch together, Kay disappeared.

Cllick here for THIS WEEKS SHOWS!
Why we exist
Asheville has a vibrant music community, but reading through dozens of venue websites can be tedious and time consuming. With so many shows happening each week, it can be easy to miss one of your favorite bands. Asheville Music Guide (AMG) is an independent, locally developed online resource that aims to help fans of live music stay up to date with shows happening at all of the venues in Asheville.
Being avid concert goers, musicians, and Asheville residents, we realized the need for something to keep track of upcoming concerts in the area, and then decided to build it. From intimate acoustic sets to dirty rock ‘n roll bands to nationally-known headlining artists, AMG is the home for all things Asheville Music. But, we’re more than just your run of the mill online event calendar. We recognize that you have certain preferences and your own eclectic music taste. Build and save a personalized schedule of your can’t-miss shows, favorite musicians, and go to venues. There’s an everest of music out there, let us be your guide.

LaMotte’s first album in a decade offers twelve new songs played by three dozen musicians from six continents. A fusion of cultural influences, from blues to bluegrass and from Latin to African, are mixed together by LaMotte and his two co-producers, Chris Rosser and Tom Prasada-Rao, to create an aural travelogue that mirrors LaMotte’s own geographical journey in the last ten years. The songs are also informed by his personal journey—becoming a father, living and working around the world, and exploring his own capacity for positive impact in questions of justice and peace.
Lisa Unger Baskin Collection – Duke University Libraries “The unifying thread is that women have always been productive and working people and this history essentially has been hidden.”
The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection arrived at Rubenstein Library in April 2015. Carefully assembled over forty-five years by noted bibliophile, activist, and collector Lisa Unger Baskin, the collection is a transformative body of material documenting women at work. In Baskin’s own words,
“The unifying thread is that women have always been productive and working people and this history essentially has been hidden.”
The collection includes many well-known monuments of women’s history and arts, as well as lesser-known works produced by female scholars, printers, publishers, laborers, scientists, authors, artists, and political activists. Taken together, they comprise a mosaic of the ways that women have been productive, creative, and socially engaged over more than five hundred years. Continue reading

We explore a topic our listeners have called out as a passionate force and a connector across all kinds of boundaries in American culture: running. Not just as exercise, or as a merely physical pursuit, but running as a source of bonding between parents and children and friends, as an interplay between competition and contemplation; as a way to understand body image and survival and healing.
