NOC Stories Panel

On Saturday, June 2nd at 3 p.m. a panel of contributors for the new book, NOC Stories will visit City Lights Bookstore.  NOC Stories describes the Nantahala Outdoor Center’s first 25 years, a time of explosive growth in whitewater sports and instruction.  Compiled by Payson Kennedy and edited by Greg Hlavaty, NOC Stories presents a history of the Nantahala Outdoor Center as seen through the eyes of early leaders and some of its dedicated staff. This history spans the years 1972-1997 and approaches the story of the NOC’s inception and growth in conjunction with the explosive growth of paddlesports and paddle instruction; in a very real sense, the great strides in paddle instruction and the growth of whitewater sports parallel the growth of the NOC. The contributors who will be in attendance are Payson Kennedy, John Burton, Bunny Johns, Villa Brewer, Tom Gonzalez, Florrie Funk, Maggie Parkes, and Cathy Kennedy.
