Book signing to benefit Polk historic site
Question of the Day
PINEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina author Robert Morgan will sign books and discuss the nation’s westward expansion at a program to raise money for the President James K. Polk State Historic Site in Pineville.
The program will be held Wednesday at the Hilton Garden Inn in Pineville. Space is limited to the first 50 people, and the event costs $20 for the program and $30 for the program and reception.
Morgan will discuss his book “Lions of the West: Heroes and Villains of the Westward Expansion.”
The state-owned President James K. Polk State Historic Site includes 21 of the 150 acres that Polk’s parents owned, farmed and lived on when he was born in 1795. Polk’s family moved from North Carolina when he was 11.
