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

Immigration: La Verdad--Top immigration consultant and ASL performer at UNCA

Click on poster, below.

Immigration enters the spotlight in an unprecedented way in Western North Carolina as Esther Olavarria, one of the nation’s top immigration consultants, comes to Asheville, April 18. Together We Read, this region’s reading, discussion, and heritage program, collaborates with UNCA to bring Olavarria to Lipinsky Auditorium at 7 p.m.

Olavarria is the Senior U.S. Advisor for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. She has served as General Counsel to Senator Edward M. Kennedy (Ranking Member, U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee) for the Subcommittee on Immigration.

Preceding Olavarria’s talk and discussion, award-winning actress Barbara Bates Smith will perform a 20-minute version of her landmark show, “My Antonia: The Story in Sign.” She combines American Sign Language, voice, and stage dramatics in telling Willa Cather’s classic story about immigrants on the Nebraska frontier.

“My Antonia” is the book that Western North Carolina is reading this spring as part of the national initiative, The Big Read, administered here by Together We Read. For many other programs, visit www.togetherweread.org. For more information, call Together We Read at 505-1973; and UNA's Political Science Department at 250-3870.

This event has been funded by Together We Read, UNCA's Ramsey Library, and UNCA's Department of Political Science. It is part of The Big Read, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Arts Midwest. Together We Read administers The Big Read in Western North Carolina.
