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

Announcing!

Two Volume Set:

Volume editor: Lee Ann Brown; Designer: Leslie Rindoks

Series editor: Rand Brandes 

At Black Mountain College, poets, philosophers, scientists and painters such as Robert Duncan, Buckminster Fuller, Merce Cunningham, John Cage and Josef Albers engaged in a vast experiment whose widespread results are still felt around the world today. Lenoir-Rhyne University’s 2008 SPIRIT OF BLACK MOUNTAIN COLLEGE was the country’s only major acknowledgment of the 1933 opening of Black Mountain College. While remnants of the SPIRIT OF BMC celebration can still be found on-line, Far from the Centers of Ambition keeps a tribute to the College alive in print. 

The poetry and art of Ted Pope collected in Varve emerges directly from his inspired BMC celebration installation, The Black Mountains of Mars. Pope, of Morganton, NC is often cited as embodying both the avant-garde and Appalachian, the disruptive and down-to-earth, energies which we have come to associate with the vast array of BMC artists.

Second in a series of books tied to Lenoir-Rhyne University’s prestigious Visiting Writers’ Series, Far From the Centers of Ambition follows What Writers Do, a behind the scenes look at the craft of writing featuring: prose by Bret Lott, Ron Rash and Dori Sanders; poems by Sharon Olds, Fred Chappell and Billy
Collins; and classic memoir excerpts by the likes of John Updike, Reynolds Price and Frank McCourt.
