Kristin Hannah in Asheville February 16th!
We invite our fellow readers, those who dread winter and those who love it, to look forward to Kristin Hannah coming to Asheville to share her latest novel, The Great Alone. Set in the far reaches of the Alaskan wilderness in 1974, reading this will put our short Southern winters in a new perspective.
 
I know many of you are huge fans of The Nightingale, and still others know Hannah forWinter GardenNight Road, or Firefly Lane. She’s written over twenty novels, but February will be the first time that she comes to our fair mountain city.
 
Tickets are on sale now to meet her on February 16th at UNCA’s Humanities Lecture Hall. Each ticket comes with a copy of The Great Alone, out in February! 
 
Be on the lookout for more exciting event news soon!

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
