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.

In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, R.E.A.C.H. of Macon County is sponsoring a talk and book signing by Angela Dove, the author of No Room for Doubt.  Her book is a nonfiction account of her family’s history and the investigation of her stepmother’s death.

Dove will be featured at two locations on Oct. 6. The first will be at St. Agnes Episcopal Church at 66 Church Street in Franklin, from 10 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. This will include a tea and light brunch.

The second event will be held the same day in Highlands, at the newly renovated Hudson Library at 554 W. Main Street from 4 until 5:30 p.m. There will be coffee/tea and afternoon refreshments.

Seating is limited and tickets are $20. Proceeds will go to R.E.A.H. domestic violence prevention programs. Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door.

R.E.A.C.H. is a nonprofit agency that provides shelter and services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
