Local playwright tells story of Horace Kephart

Written by 

Gary Carden, storyteller and humorist, will once again visit Highlands at 4 p.m. Aug. 28 at the Hudson Library to share excerpts from his latest work, “Outlander,” a play about the creation of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The outlander is Horace Kephart, a travel writer and librarian who in the 1920s had a desire to come to the mountains of North Carolina. Carden will be discussing the play and sharing some of the stories from the creation of this national park. Much of the dialogue in the play connects to the mountain families who had lived on the land for several generations. This is an issue that people are still sensitive about today.

Copies of his play will be available for purchase. The Hudson library is located at 554 Main St. in Highlands.
