                            Natives, Newcomers, and Summer People: 
                        Tourism, History, and Culture in North Carolina

                         Richard Starnes, Western Carolina Univeristy

With a breathtaking coastline, majestic mountains, and famous Piedmont resorts, it is no wonder tourism is one of the most important segments of NC's economy.  In fact , tourism has become more than a mode of economic development and is now an important force in shaping local culture. This program examines the history of tourism in NC, the role of tourism and tourists in shaping the state's history and culture, and the broader social and economic implications of a tourism economy.

This long-running monthly program series features a wide variety of speakers, performers and artists on an array of topics. During the Sesquicentennial year, each program in the series will focus on some aspect of the arts, history or culture of Transylvania County. Contact the Library for individual program listings. All programs are held in the Rogow Room of the Transylvania County Library, 212 South Gaston Street, Brevard.
