I'd really like to place this post in every category on The Read, but perhaps "Our Cultural Community" is the best match.
I'm Allan Wolf, author/poet living in Asheville. I've been picking at a book of verse about Asheville ever since I moved here 20-some years ago. "Thought Poems" in something of a manic and athletic style, like Thomas Wolfe himself. Here's the question I'd like to put on the table:
What topics MUST be covered? Ex: Transportation (trolley car to AT); famous corpses (Wolfe, O. Henry, Zelda, etc); politics (past and present); The Battle of Asheville; Asheville's Occupation during the civil war; homelessness; race relations; architecture; historic business past and present, etc.
