The Touring Theater of North Carolina will present Look Back the Maytime Days:  from the pages of Fred Chappell in a free showing at Haywood Community College’s Auditorium on Thursday, November 15 at 2 p.m.

Chappell was born in Canton. He is the author of over two dozen books of poetry, fiction, and criticism. He was the Poet Laureate of North Carolina from 1997-2002 and a NC Literary Hall of Fame inductee in 2006.

Audiences will meet wise, eccentric, playful, and profound members of Fred Chappell’s fictional family as they converse, expound, and exaggerate. This production is an Appalachian rhapsody of voices taken from the ridges and hollows of the mountains of North Carolina and woven together with traditional mountain music.

Featuring the witty and elegantly written prose and poetry of Chappell, this production is the first in Touring Theatre of NC’s Kinfolk Series. This series is adaptations featuring North Carolina writers on the subject of family and has toured extensively throughout North Carolina.

At the close of the event, Chappell will be on hand for a book signing.
