Author Charles Frazier to read at Cherokee museum

Best-selling author Charles Frazier will read and sign copies of his new novel, “Thirteen Moons,” Saturday, Nov. 4, at the Museum of the Cherokee Indian. (This museum is located in Western North Carolina.)

The book is a fictionalized account inspired by the life of William Thomas as it relates to the formation of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation in the 1800s. Frazier’s first novel, “Cold Mountain,” which is also set in Western North Carolina, won the 1997 National Book Award.

The event is free and will begin at 12:30 p.m. with flute music by Eastern Band member John Grant Jr., followed by a 1 p.m. reading by Frazier and Cherokee translator Myrtle Driver. The Warriors of AniKituhwa will also perform.

Overflow parking and shuttle service will be available from the Mountainside Theater parking lot.

Frazier and the Museum have created a partnership to form the Cherokee Literature Initiative, which will publish works in the Cherokee syllabary. A portion of “Thirteen Moons” will be the first work translated through the initiative by Driver, an Eastern Band member.

Barbara Duncan, education director at the museum, is the author of two books, “Living Stories of the Cherokee” and “Cherokee Heritage Trails Guidebook,” which Frazier used as sources for his novel. Duncan’s and Frazier’s books, as well as hundreds of other Cherokee titles, are available at the museum store.

For more information about the book signing, e-mail Sharon Littlejohn at or call the museum toll-free at 1-888-665-7249. To learn more about the Cherokee Literature Initiative, or to make a donation, call the museum or visit
