Journalist and Author Scott Huler will discuss his book, Rediscovering the Carolinas on the Route of John Lawson's 1700 Expedition. In 1700, a young man named John Lawson undertook a two-month journey through the still-mysterious Carolina backcountry. His travels yielded one of the most significant early American travel narratives, rich with observations about the region's environment and Indigenous people.  In 2014, Scott Huler decided to make his own journey by foot and canoe, faithfully retracing Lawson's route through the Carolinas. His book is the chronicle of that unlikely voyage. Huler will read from the book and discuss his journey at the event.  Copies of the book will be for sale and Huler will be available for signing.
