      A Short Time to Stay Here is set at the Mountain Park Hotel in isolated Hot Springs, north of Asheville. The hotel served as the internment site for more than 2,000 German nationals during the war.

      The 5:30 p.m. reading and discussion in the Wilson Special Collections Library is free and open to the public. The North Carolina Collection is the program sponsor.

      Roberts, who was born in Asheville and raised in Weaverville, N.C., is the director of the National Paideia Center in Chapel Hill, which advocates for a holistic approach to life-long learning.

      Books will be available for sale and signing, courtesy of the Bull’s Head Bookshop.
