Carson-Newman University’s Appalachian Cultural Center features two events this October. Both are free and open to the public.

On Monday, Oct. 3, at 7 p.m., Dr. Susan O’Dell Underwood will read from her book “Genesis Road.” The book is her first novel. The East Tennessee native, who serves as C-N professor of English, has two poetry chapbooks as well as a full-length collection, “The Book of Awe” and another “Splinter.”

Wednesday, Oct. 19, at 4 p.m., the University hosts Andy Peck, editor of “The Pecks of Mossy Creek” series. The series includes “Ada’s Journal and Emma’s Letters” and “Charley’s Novel.” Peck will speak on the series that features the history of the Peck family and their connection to the local area.

“These events will help illuminate both the history and culture of our region in different but compelling ways, as well as showcase the rich talent and creativity from Carson-Newman and our larger community,” said Dr. Wesley McMasters, director of the Appalachian Cultural Center. 

The events will be held in Tarr Music Center’s Thomas Recital Hall located on Russell Ave. on campus.
