The Tennessee State Museum hosts a wide range of FREE, fascinating events and educational programs throughout the year. Advance reservations are not required, unless indicated on the listing. For seated events, seats are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
Join Amanda McCreary Smith, Museum curator of textiles and fashion, for a discussion of The Wild East by Margaret Lynn Brown.
The Wild East explores the social, political, and environmental changes in the Great Smoky Mountains during the 19th and 20th centuries. Although this national park is most often portrayed as a triumph of wilderness preservation, Margaret Lynn Brown concludes that the largest forested region in the eastern United States is actually a re-created wilderness, a product of restoration and even manipulation of the land.
The event will take place online from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. CDT (7 p.m.- 8:30 p.m. EDT) and the link will be sent to attendees the day of the book club. Questions? Contact Public.Programs@tn.gov.
