Poetry, stories, novels, you name it. AND, check it out - so many of the next generation of regional writers received their MFA from Chappell's UNC-G program! Chappell grew up in Canton, North Carolina and is a past Poet Laureate of North Carolina. This book will transport you to the Asheville, North Carolina, that existed before the hipsters descended upon it.
