Sharyn McCrumb and King’s MountainMeet acclaimed Appalachian writer Sharyn McCrumb as she celebrates the publication of her new novel King’s Mountain which is based around the Revolutionary War battle that changed the course of the war and ultimately
led to a Patriot victory. Abingdon was the northern terminus of the gathering of militia forces that marched over the mountains to defeat the British at King’s Mountain, South Carolina. The novel is told from the point of view of Patriot leader John Sevier and Tory camp follower Sal. At both events, McCrumb will read from and discuss her book, and there will be book sales and signings.
