Common Word Community Read: An Evening with Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Zucchino


Reuter Center, Manheimer Room (102)

April 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Event Navigation

On April 8 at 6 p.m., join authors Wiley Cash and David Zucchino as they discuss Zucchino’s book “Wilmington’s Lie,” this semester’s Community Read selection.

The event will be in the OLLI Reuter Center, Manheimer Room 102. It is free and open to the public. Register to attend here. Live streaming will be available.

“Wilmington’s Lie: The Murderous Coup of 1898 and the Rise of White Supremacy,” is the most complete and in-depth account of the massacre of Wilmington’s Black community as well as the violence and the political and media campaign that followed.

This is the third and final in a three-event series, the Common Word Community Read, which brings the UNC Asheville community together each semester around a shared text to engage in a collective educational experience that features lectures and discussions in a welcoming and respectful environment. The program is curated by Wiley Cash, New York Times bestselling author, alumnus of the class of 2000, and UNCA’s Executive Director of Literary Arts.
