The latest book and movie from best-selling author Nicholas Sparks will center on the mountain’s most famous avante-garde arts college.
Sparks, writer of “Safe Haven,” “The Lucky One,” “The Notebook,” and “Nights in Rodanthe,” has turned his sights to the mountains for his latest novel, “The Longest Ride.”
Playing a key role in the parallel story of two couples is Black Mountain College, an experimental institution that from 1933-57 sought to push art and design to the forefront of American education.
A Sparks book and movie focusing on the college will remind the public of how the institution helped transform art and architecture, Alice Sebrell, Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center program director, said.
In my quick search, I don’t see either a book title or release date. Anyone?
Loyal reader ivanrich points me in the right direction:
Called “The Longest Ride”, book release set for September 17.
