A Story of Mountaintop Mining and Citizen Action Along North Carolina's Appalachian Trail
Monday, February 18, 2013   -   7:30 PM
Location:  Sloan Music Center Tyler-Tallman Recital Hall

Author Jay Leutze will be discussing his book, “Stand Up That Mountain: The Battle to Save One Small Community in the Wilderness Along the Appalachian Trail,” which was published by Simon and Schuster in June of 2012. The book chronicles the work of Mr. Leutze as a lawyer working with a small community in the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina to stop mountaintop mining along the Appalachian Trail. Leutze not only details the difficult but ultimately successful legal drama that unfolded in the case, but also the people and personalities involved in it. As a trustee of the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy, Mr. Leutze will also discuss the importance of values and music in environmental activism.
