ASHEVILLE, N.C. - Aug. 28, 2019 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Hidden History of Asheville

Local author Zoe Rhine will be available to sign copies of book


The milestones of Asheville's long history are well known to locals, but so many interesting stories are all but forgotten. Thankfully, the staff and volunteers of the North Carolina Room at Pack Memorial Library have unearthed the best of those hidden tales. Meet daredevil aviatrix Uva Shipman and Tempie Avery, who went from slavery to respected nurse and citizen. Learn the poignant tale behind the sad death of former mayor Gallatin Roberts and uncover the parts of old Asheville lost to the wrecking ball. These and many more historic episodes come to life in this collection compiled by North Carolina Room librarian Zoe Rhine.
