From Our Editors
Sylva, North Carolina is nestled in the midst of the Great Smoky Mountains, a grandiose setting that has provided inspiration for many excellent works of literature. In town, the City Lights Bookstore highlights these local books to share with the community and the rest of the world. The wooden stacks inside the cozy shop are mirrored by endless rows of books online, available to community members no matter where they live. Try Timm Muth's fantasy novel, Disciple of the Flames, or Jenny Bennett's The Twelve Streams of LeConte, which takes place in Sylva and even at the bookstore. The authors often visit City Lights to read from their works and sign purchased books, so you have ample opportunity to ask them why they didn't name their big villains after you.
