Asheville- The Way I Remember It- Hester

I have posted a new blog about a man I knew growing up in Asheville. It is entitled " Hester." Anna says guys will like it better than women. It's pretty long, but enjoy it.HESTERGrowing up in Asheville in N.C. in the 50’s and 60’s seemed, at the time, to be filled with a rhythm of adventure and strange encounters sprinkled with an assortment of particularly interesting and somewhat odd characters.

Event Description

John Jeter is the author of Rockin’ a Hard Place, a memoir of his journey from burnt-out journalist to promoter and “misfit music club owner.” Rockin’ a Hard Place is “a uniquely and skillfully told, ultimately inspiring look at an until-now unexplored side of the music business, “says Peter Cooper of The Tennessean. Michael Supe Granda presents his book, It Shined: the Saga of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, an account of the Missourian band Ozark Mountain Daredevils, of which Supe was the bassist.  The book follows the band in and out of the spotlight, from top of the charts to the bottom of the barrel. Author of Backward-Facing Man, Don Silver returns with Clive, a portrait of historic record man Clive Davis and chronicle of a turning point in popular American music. Clive is praised as “Totally compelling from the very start" by musician Rosanne Cash. The event will be followed by a booksigning; it is free and open to the public.
