Michael Joslin Author Talk

July 9, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Michael Joslin, photographer and author, will speak on Wednesday, July 9, at noon, at the Johnson City Public Library in the Jones Meeting Center. Mr. Joslin will talk about mountain folks he has met, the mountain places he has visited, and the efforts to publish his stories. His photography has become his most time-consuming hobby along with draft horses and gardens.

Michael Joslin grew up living on the East coast from Northern Virginia to Key West. He earned his Ph.D. in English from the University of South Carolina. He is the program coordinator for English majors and director of the Stephenson Center for Appalachia at Lees-McRae College, Banner Elk, N.C. He has six books which feature much of his own photography and has published articles ranging from mountain crafts to mountain places to mountain people. His books amount to travel guides focusing on interesting places inhabited by interesting people.

This free event will be a “Bring Your Own” bag lunch, with beverages and desserts provided by the Friends of the Johnson City Public Library. This Meet the Author talk is sponsored by the Friends of the Johnson City Public Library. For more information, please call 434-4450 or the Reference Desk at 434-4454.
