History program at Landrum Library postponed

Published 10:56 am Thursday, June 16, 2011

The history presentation and book signing for “Distilling the Mysteries of Hogback Mountain” have been replaced by an alternate program. This program is scheduled for the same time at the Landrum Library on Tuesday, June 21 at 6:30 p.m. In its place, the Dark Corner History Program, “The Stills of Glassy Mountain,” will be presented.

“Stills of Glassy Mountain” features the stories of Deputy Sheriff PraloWood and Revenue Agent Jim Tanersley. It contains numerous photographs of this storied period, including photos of the remains the broken stills hidden in the woods.

The reason for this change is that the publisher failed to sew the binding of the book – a requirement when using high quality color photographic paper. The result is a product that would not hold up over time. The author, Jim Stehlik, said it would be unacceptable to distribute a defective product. The books are being returned to the publisher and will be rebound at their expense. It is anticipated that the books will be returned in about three weeks, and the event will be rescheduled.
