Editorial Reviews


Hub City is bringing the dream of community back into the body of industrial sleep. -- Point Magazine, April 1996

This is a carefully constructed, lively anthology with both words and pictures to enjoy and ponder. -- The Charlotte Observer, May 1996

From the Publisher

This is the book that has been featured in The Utne Reader, Orion Afield and Brightleaf, a book that is showing cities and towns across the United States how to foster a sense of community through literature. Though Hub City is about one Southern town, it also has a much larger context. It's a book about a boomtown community seeking to find its voice in the face of enormous changes. The essays in the book are, among other subjects, about places lost, life in the suburbs, weird religion, threatened greenspaces, the county fair, family reunions, racism, and yes, of course, trains. The work of photographers and artists also are included in a full-color section of the book.
