Internationally-renowned novelist and North Carolina native Tom Robbins returns home for the first time in more than seven decades, and with a new book. Tibetan Peach Pie:  A True Account of an Imaginative Life is Robbins’ own story, which began in Blowing Rock, North Carolina.  Robbins says it isn't the story of his life, but a series of "true stories from my life."  Robbins offers intimate memories of his Appalachian upbringing during the depression, the psychedelic 1960’s and his start as an author.  This will be a rare southern stop for the author of multiple cult classics including Another Roadside Attraction, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, and Skinny Legs and All.
