Black Mountain author Nancy Werking Poling will visit City Lights Bookstore at 3 p.m. Saturday. She will present her novel “While the Earth Still Speaks,” set in the mountains of North Carolina.

Wayne Caldwell said of the book, “Nancy Poling has crafted a surprising mix – ‘While Earth Still Speaks’ is part adventure, part environmental activism, part visionary tale. Uniting it is Elizabeth McNair, who breaks from a stifling marriage ultimately to become her own woman and leave a legacy of courage.”

To reserve copies of “While the Earth Still Speaks” call City Lights Bookstore at 586-9499.
