LitCafé continues Tuesday, September 7 at 6PM. We are joined by Peter Barr who will discuss his recently-published book, Exploring North Carolina’s Lookout Towers: A Guide to Hikes and Vistas. This event airs live and will be recorded as well. As usual, we will hold a Q&A session following Peter’s presentation.

About the Author: Peter Barr has served as the trails director for Conserving Carolina since 2010, and has led the creation of over 25-miles of trail in the Hickory Nut Gorge since then. He is an avid hiker who has thru-hiked the Appalachian trail and reached the highest peak in all 100 NC counties and 40 states, He also initiated the North Carolina chapter of the Forest Fire Lookout Association which works to restore and preserve historic fire lookout towers in western NC. Peter joins us while he and his wife Allison are travelling the country in a solar-equipped RV.
