All about the Carltons

Dr. Barbara Carlton will autograph copies of her book, This Nearly Was Mine: A Journey Through Carlton Country at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, July 28, in the Friendship Garden at the Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library.

In June 1994, the Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library was dedicated. The site for the library was purchased by the Carlton family. Dr. Carlton has continued her support with spearheading the expansion of the library in 2007.

Proceeds from the sale of her book will go to the Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library Foundation, which supports the library and the Friends of the Library and the Summit Charter School.

At our inception 20 years ago, we chose to be different. Unlike other news organizations, we made the decision to provide in-depth, regional reporting free to anyone who wanted access to it. We don’t plan to change that model. Support from our readers will help us maintain and strengthen the editorial independence that is crucial to our mission to help make Western North Carolina a better place to call home. If you are able, please support The Smoky Mountain News.

The Smoky Mountain News is a wholly private corporation. Reader contributions support the journalistic mission of SMN to remain independent. Your support of SMN does not constitute a charitable donation. If you have a question about contributing to SMN, please contact us.
