Literary Trails of the North Carolina Piedmont

Why has the Piedmont, and Charlotte in particular, produced so many writers of mystery and crime novels? How has the textile mill culture influenced Piedmont literature throughout the 20th and into the 21st century? What are the roots of North Carolina’s extraordinary proliferation of creative writers? Based on her guidebook by the same title, Georgann Eubanks answers these questions and takes readers on a literary tour of North Carolina’s Piedmont, past and present.
