UNCA to Host a Talk and Book Signing with Novelist
Laryce Harrison Rybka
UNC Asheville will host a talk and book signing with novelist Laryce Harrison Rybka at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 2, in UNCA's Laurel Forum, Karpen Hall. The event, sponsored by UNCA's Diversity and Multicultural Affairs Office, is free and open to the public.
"Guardian of the Lamp," Rybka's first book, is loosely based on her maternal grandmother's ancestry. The historical novel portrays three generations of women in antebellum South Carolina as they cross the line into forbidden love, advance the cause of abolitionism and work with the Underground Railroad. Rybka, a Raleigh native, is currently working on the sequel, "Legacy of the Lamp."
