Events for readers and writers

Book study group: ‘Daring Democracy’

A new book group will hold a discussion on the work Daring Democracy: Igniting Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America We Want by Francis Lappe and Adam Eichen.

Discussions will be on three Sunday afternoons: Jan. 21, Feb. 4 and Feb 18. This free community program will begin at 1 p.m. at the UU Fellowship on 85 Sierra Lane in Franklin.

Democracy is not just a description of our government, it is a way of life we all can and must participate in to be effective. Complaining does not foster change. Voicing our opinions in constructive ways, selecting leaders who represent our interests, and participating in decision making processes are all part of the democratic process.

All are welcome. Register in case they need to reschedule for weather: 828.524.3691 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..">This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


The history of the Plott Hound

The Jackson County Public Library will welcome Bob Plott at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 25, in the Community Room of the library in Sylva.

Plott is an award-winning North Carolina native who has published several books on hunting and the premier big game hunting dog breed in America — the Plott Hound. Plott will be discussing his latest book, Plott Hound Tales.

This fascinating story of the Plott family and the Plott hound is a classic American tale of adventure with roots deeply entrenched in North Carolina soil and American history and culture. And it is a story that award-winning author and historian Bob Plott, the great-great-great grandson of Johannes George Plott, is uniquely qualified to tell.

This program is free of charge. For more information, call the library at 828.586.2016. This event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library.

The Jackson County Public Library is a member of Fontana Regional Library (www.fontanalib.org).
