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

David Madden published his first novel in 1961, based on his experiences as a Merchant seaman. Madden plunged into a life in literature, and – though one is tempted to say he never looked back – he looks back constantly; at events in his life and at history. Historical fiction has been his forte, but he also writes plays, poetry, essays, and short stories. He has received a Rockefeller grant, a nomination for the Pulitzer Prize, and had a book written about him.

The Black Mountain Authors Guild is proud to present Madden in the second of its reading series, “Third Thursday” August 15 at 5 pm at the Monte Vista Hotel in Black Mountain. There will be a cash bar and light hors d’ouvres.

Madden adapted his second novel, Cassandra Singing, for Warner Brothers. The Shadow Knows, won a National Council on the Arts Award. A Rockefeller Grant, recommended by Robert Penn Warren and Saul Bellow, enabled him to work in Venice and Yugoslavia on his third novel, Bijou, a Book of the Month Club Alternate Selection. Madden’s best-known novel, The Suicide’s Wife, was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and made into a CBS movie. Pleasure-Dome, On the Big Wind, and Sharpshooter: A Novel of the Civil War are his most recent novels. He is finishing the third novel in a trilogy London Bridge in Plague and Fire.

His poems and short stories have appeared in a wide variety of publications, from Playboy to The Southern Review. His plays have won many state and national contests.

Writer-in-Residence at UNC-Chapel Hill, Clark University, Lynchburg College, among others, and Distinguished Visiting Scholar at the University of Delaware, he held the Chair of Excellence at Austin Peay State University. David Madden: A Writer for All Genres consists of original essays by scholars and creative writers on Madden’s writings.

Born in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1933, David Madden graduated from U-Tenn., served in the Army, earned an M.A. at San Francisco State, and attended Yale Drama School. Writer-in-residence at LSU from 1968 to 1992, Director of the Creative Writing Program 1992-1994, he is now LSU Robert Penn Warren Professor of Creative Writing, Emeritus.

The Monte Vista Hotel is located at 308 W. State Street in Black Mountain. For more information, call The Monte Vista, 669-8870.
