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

When Robert Morgan’s novel Gap Creek was published in 1999, it became an instant national bestseller, attracting hundreds of thousands of readers. Set in the Southern Appalachia at the turn of the twentieth century, it followed Julie and Hank Richards as they struggled through the first year and a half of their marriage. But what of the years that followed? What did the future hold for these memorable characters? The Road from Gap Creek holds the answers, as Robert Morgan takes us back into their lives through the eyes of their youngest daughter, Annie. Through Annie, we watch as the four Richards children create their own histories that include both triumphs and hardship in the face of the Great Depression and then World War II. Much more than a sequel, The Road from Gap Creek is an indelible portrait of people and their world in a time of unprecedented change, an American story told by one of our country’s most acclaimed writers.  A native of North Carolina, Robert Morgan has created a body of work that critics have termed “pitch perfect,” “lyrical,” and “delicately textured” and that the New York Times Book Review has compared to Cormac McCarthy’s. The Road from Gap Creek  is a sure-fire North Carolina classic.

This event is free and open to the public.
