Book signing for three mountain women

Written by 

Barbara Woodall, Amy Ammons Garza and Doreyl Ammons Cain will sign books at City Lights Bookstore at 2 p.m. on March 31.

The three women will share how they came to write/illustrate their books, and how they are connected. They will read excerpts, have discussion time and sign books. Refreshments will also be served.

Woodall is the author of It’s Not My Mountain Anymore. Garza is a local storyteller whose sister Cain illustrated her most recent book Said the Leaf. Both novels are about mountain heritage and mountain living.

The sisters also founded Catch the Spirit of Appalachia, a nonprofit focused on drawing “attention to the need to conserve, protect and save the natural and human heritage of the local mountain people.”

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
