Description:
Grovewood Village is housed in the historic weaving and woodworking complex of Biltmore Industries - a noteworthy enterprise in the history of American Craft and textiles, originally backed by George and Edith Vanderbilt. At the height of its success in the late 1920s, under the direction of Fred Loring Seely (Edwin Grove’s son-in-law), Biltmore Industries had a total of 40 looms in steady operation, producing bolts of some of the finest handwoven wool fabric in the country. Orders were shipped as far as China and Uruguay, and customers included the likes of Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Helen Keller, and several U.S. presidents and first ladies. Learn the story of Biltmore Industries on a guided history tour, offered Wednesday - Saturday at 1pm during April – November. Tours last approximately 45 minutes and operate on a first-come, first-served basis, open to 25 people.

Description:
Asheville's Literary Festival, Asheville Wordfest, welcomes North Carolina Poet Laureate, Jake Shelton Green. Wordfest is delighted to host North Carolina's Poet Laureate, particularly Jaki whose devotion to teaching and building the SisSTAR-hood runs as deep as the rivers rushing inside our mountains. Wordfest also welcomes Award-Winning poet of witness and Human Rights Advocate, Carolyn Forché. Wordfest will be the launching place of Forché's latest work, What You Have Heard Is True: a Memoir of Witness and Resistance. For many of us, Forché's Anthologies, Against Forgetting and Poetry of Witness have shaped the work we do both on and off the page. Asheville Wordfest is one of the countless sprigs from these powerful trees. Our aim is to Heal the Soul of Appalachia with words this year, and even to Heal the Soul of the World. Sharon Oxendine, a Beloved Elder of the Lumbee Tribe and Wisdom Keeper, will lead a talk as a First Nations Woman. Byron Ballard, author and Village Witch, will lead a workshop and share lore of the land. Cara Hagan returns to Wordfest as both curator and presenter; she will be presenting a program at ReVolve on December 5 (details will be on the website) that will find its continuation in Wordfest. Cara will also engage our special guests, The Gaza Poetry Society, via Zoom. Marlisa Mills of Blue Lotus will guide us into the bravery of grief; Lisa Soledad Almaraz will guide us in a workshop; and John Evans will lead us through a transformative writing workshop. All of this plus poetry workshops and lessons in other genres facilitated by Flat Iron Writers Room--and readings and song by Michael Hettich, Afrofuturist Darrell Stover, Melissa Henry, Mildred Barya, and more. Once again, Asheville Wordfest presents a place of poiesis--creativity and meaning. Not all events and workshops are listed below. Please check back.
