Blue Ridge Books will host Jenny Bennett, author of Murder at the Jumpoff, at 3 p.m. on April 21.
Bennett’s book tells the story of Donald MacIntyre, an avid off-trail hiker, who fails to return from a quest to bushwhack through difficult terrain to the top of the Jumpoff, a dramatic cliff in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Good-natured backcountry ranger Hector Jones leads a search-and-rescue team into the remotest depths of the Greenbrier section of the park and discovers MacIntyre’s body.
Blue Ridge Books is located at 152 South Main Street in Waynesville. 828.456.6000.
