Read Smart Book Discussion - Guests on Earth by Lee Smith
Join us for a discussion of beloved local author Lee Smith's newest novel Guests on Earth. Our discussion will be led by Dr. Scott Stage, associate professor of psychology at NC State. About the book: It’s 1936 when orphaned thirteen-year-old Evalina Toussaint is admitted to Highland Hospital in Asheville, North Carolina, a mental institution known for its innovative treatments for nervous disorders and addictions. Taken under the wing of the hospital’s most notable patient, Zelda Fitzgerald, Evalina witnesses the cascading events leading up to the tragic fire of 1948 that killed nine women in a locked ward, Zelda among them.
