Ben Anderson @ Wilderness Wildlife Week

Nature lovers, hikers and outdoors enthusiasts unite for Wilderness Wildlife Week™ in Pigeon Forge!

From educational programs designed specifically for the youngsters to guided hikes into the Great Smoky Mountains for the more adventurous folks, Wilderness Wildlife Week offers a variety of programs for all ages and interests. What better place to celebrate the features, creatures, and cultures of Great Smoky Mountains National Park than in the Center of Fun in The Smokies?

Ben Anderson will be signing copies of his book, Smokies Chronicle, at the GSMA booth on Friday, May 11, from 2-4:30 PM.

 

Since its creation in 1934, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has become the most heavily visited of all our national parks, with yearly visitation sometimes surpassing 10 million people. As the national park system celebrated its centennial in 2016, Ben Anderson decided to explore and closely observe, across the seasons, as much of the nation’s most popular national park as practicable during the year.  On the three or four hikes he took each month, he revisited a number of trails familiar to him from previous excursions as a Smokies backcountry volunteer for more than 20 years.To many, the Smokies are among the loveliest and most interesting mountains anywhere, favored by a remarkable biodiversity. Anderson offers observations on natural and human history, mountain culture, geography, geology, flora and fauna. The book also deftly blends the personal with the universal in a compelling mix of entries from the backcountry. Although this book can be used as a helpful trail guide, it also provides a fresh look and an engaging narrative about our most heavily visited national park, through the eyes and ears of a lifelong devotee.

 

Ben Anderson was media relations director at Warren Wilson College from 1997 to 2015. Before that he was assistant professor of mass communications at Florida Southern College. He worked on the staffs of The Asheville Times, the Waynesville Mountaineer, Greensboro Record, Athens Banner-Herald, Atlanta Journal, Athens Daily News. He has been a backcountry volunteer for Great Smoky Mountains National Park for more than 20 years. He now does marketing and public relations work for the Grove Arcade Public Market Foundation in Asheville. A native of Atlanta, he lives in Asheville, NC.

Join the Winston-Salem Journal for the second in a series of Twin City Talks Community Forums.  This free event is open to the public, but an RSVP is required

For the second forum, the topic will be Spirited Talk: Can We Drink Our Way to Prosperity?  

With the influx of wineries, breweries and distilleries in and around our community, what kind of economic impact does this have in #wsnc? How many does Winston-Salem need? How does the alcohol industry contribute to the City of Arts & Innovation?

Public input: We welcome questions from the public around this topic.  Citizens may email their question in advance to promotions@wsjournal.com or via Twitter via@twincitytalks.  Written questions will also be collected at the forum and the moderator will address as many questions as possible within the time allowed. 

Panelists

  • Jamie Bartholomaus - Owner, Foothills Brewery
  • Mark Friszolowsk - Winemaker, Childress Winery
  • John Trump - Author, "Still and Barrel"
  • Marcheta Cole Keefer - Visit Winston-Salem

 

About Twin City Talks

Discussion. The definition of the word is consideration of a question in open and informal debate.

Simply talking about an idea is a powerful exercise. We do it all the time at work and at home. We talk to people close to us and we share ideas with random strangers.

Discussion is how we find our way through the world. We talk to each other, share ideas and oftentimes take action.

The staff at the Winston-Salem Journal is continually looking for new ways to get people talking to each other, in meaningful ways, which led to the idea to do something rather simple: Let’s get people together to talk about things that matter to them.

 

A lifelong newspaper reporter & editor in NC, Trump received an MFA in narrative nonfiction from Goucher College. His thesis, which told the stories and profiles of North Carolina’s craft distilleries, evolved into a regular Huffington Post blog focused on the subject. That blog was the impetus for Still & Barrel.
