Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Event Description

The Third Thursday reading this month will feature stories and poems about food. As you might imagine, a whole hungry cadre of writers stepped up to the plate to read. The feast will take place at the Monte Vista Hotel this Thursday, which also just happens to be Fried Chicken day at the Hotel. Yum!


Here’s what’s on the menu:


Jeff Hutchins moved to Black Mountain in 2008. In his prior life, Jeff helped develop the technology of closed captioning, which is used to make television programming accessible to deaf audiences. Now Jeff is writing and publishing books, including this year's "Denton the Dragon in Tales of Bubbleland." The project, intended to teach universal values to children, also spawned a CD and videos. Jeff grew up in the Middle East, and thinks Lebanese food is the greatest.


Karen Leonetti is the author of The Yummy Tummy Rainbow Garden. Do you have a picky eater? This book gets children jazzed about eating fresh foods. Karen owned a eco-Green organic preschool in Florida for 17 years before moving to Black Mountain last year. She is a fresh food expert and Early Childhood Specialist. Her book includes four dairy, sugar and gluten free recipes of which she will be presenting a yummy healthy dark chocolate mousse demo & sampling the recipe from her book on Thursday. Come hear about super foods and easy ways to eat them with Karen!


Alice Johnson’s contribution is called Gumbo because she grew up in a gumbo of place and people.  New Orleans was always the strong dollop of French, Spanish, Cajun, cooking and wisdom and everything in between.  And the food. Oh, Lord the food.  Gertrude taught her to cook.  She took cooking lessons in France, Italy and Mexico, but nothing came close to the expertise of Saint Gertrude. She dedicates all her meals to her. Alice has work in several anthologies:  O. Henry Festival of Stories, I Thought my Father was God, Alice Redux, Kakalak four times, The Crucible and New Millenium Writings.  Her story "A Soft Tread" won first place in the Tennessee Writer's Alliance.


Nancy Poling has been eating ever since she can remember. Unexpected havoc disrupts the dignity of a church picnic in a scene from her latest work-in-progress. Nancy is author of a novel, Out of the Pumpkin Shell, and a collection of short stories, Had Eve Come First and Jonah Been a Woman. She frequently contributes to the Op-Ed section of the Asheville Citizen-Times.


Lois Chazen is a dark-chocolate freak, for it is only dark morsels she ventures to seek.

Unpublished poem from, "The darker it is the harder I fall."


Ina Mackie and Rusty Frank will provide seconds.
