Look Homeward Riverside Cemetery Tour

May 14, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Take a walk into Thomas Wolfe’s “Altamont.” After Look Homeward, Angel was published in October 1929 many Asheville citizens were outraged to find themselves portrayed, often negatively, in the book. Discover some of the real people behind the fiction! Join us for the Look Homeward Riverside Cemetery walking tour. The tours include information about the real person and quotes from Wolfe’s work describing the fictional person. Meet your guide at the gate to the cemetery. Tickets $5.00/person (plus tax) in advance at the Thomas Wolfe Memorial.
