Master storyteller Gary Carden of The Liars Bench presents “Madison,” a monologue honoring the life of Western Carolina University founder Dr. Robert Lee Madison, on Fri., April 26 at 7 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Franklin.
Carden, assisted by Pam Meister, curator of the Mountain Heritage Center at WCU, tells the life story of Dr. Madison, a man who promoted the idea of a school that would train teachers for mountain schools. His idea manifested itself into the Cullowhee Academy, which later grew into Western Carolina University.
