7 - 8 pm

The UT Arboretum Society will present a program by author David Brill on Tuesday, April 10th at 7:00 p.m.at the UT Arboretum Auditorium, 901 S. Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge.

Between 1931 and 2013, 468 people lost their lives in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. In his book, “Into the Mist: Tales of Death and Disaster, Mishaps and Misdeeds, Misfortune and Mayhem in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park,” Brill chronicles not only the tragedies but also epic storm events and heroic rescues. During this program, Brill will read from his new book which depicts men and women in extreme situations, struggling to survive against brutal and often deadly adversity. Autographed copies of “Into the Mist” and Brill’s first book, “As Far as the Eye Can See: Reflections of an Appalachian Trail Hiker,” will be available for purchase and signing at the program. “As Far as the Eye Can See,” originally published in 1990, is now in its seventh printing.


Unless otherwise noted, all events are open to the public.
