Knoxville History Project: Brown Bag Lecture with Jack Neely

Category: Free event, History & heritage, Lectures and Literature & readings

“Historic Knoxville: The Curious Visitor’s Guide to its Stories and Places”

Join Jack Neely for a Brown Bag Lecture and book signing as he discusses his latest book, Historic Knoxville: The Curious Visitor's Guide to Its Stories and Places, a comprehensive and engaging guide to scores of sites and institutions relevant to the city's endlessly fascinating, but often little known, history. Jack will also identify historic locations across the city that define Knoxville's uniqueness as an Appalachian town deeply rooted in the past, as well as the remarkable individuals who have left their mark on the "scruffy city", making it quite possibly the most American of cities. A book signing will follow the lecture.

A well-known local author and historian, Neely is executive director of the Knoxville History Project and for many years authored the popular "Knoxville's Secret History," column in the Metro Pulse. Other publications include Market Square: A History of the Most Democratic Place on Earth, Knoxville: This Obscure Prismatic City, From The Shadow Side: And Other Stories Of Knoxville, Tennessee, and The Marble City: A Photographic Tour of Knoxville's Graveyards.

The lecture is sponsored by the Gentry Griffey Funeral Chapel and Crematory and is free and open to the public and will begin at noon, Wednesday, September 18, at the East Tennessee History Center, 601 S. Gay Street, Knoxville. Guests are invited to bring a "Brown Bag" lunch and enjoy the lecture. Soft drinks are available.
