Written by 

art kephartWestern North Carolina writer Gary Carden will present his play “Outlander” at 7 p.m., Sept. 25, at the Swain County Center for the Arts in Bryson City. Earlier in the day, this historical play about the work of Horace Kephart and the mountains of Western North Carolina will be performed in a school assembly for students of Swain County High School. 

“Outlander” is about the work of Kephart, who was a librarian, academic, author of Our Southern Highlanders and founder of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. With music by Frank Lee, storytelling and humor, Gary Carden weaves details about life and customs in the mountains of Western North Carolina from 1912 to 1930. Admission is $5 at the door.
