Chuck McShane’s new book on Lake Norman history is out.
By DAVID BORAKS
Residents of the Lake Norman region have been remembering the lake’s 50-year history over the past couple of years with research projects, programs and other events. Now, there’s a new history, too.
Author and historian Chuck McShane‘s “A History of Lake Norman: Fish Camps to Ferraris” was published Sept. 30. It’s an accessible 120-page account of the lake’s origins and evolution, illustrated with historical and contemporary photographs and charts.
McShane is on a local book tour this week, beginning with a program at Cornelius Library on Tuesday and including stops at Duke Energy’s EnergyExplorium in Huntersville Friday and Main Street Books in Davidson Sunday. (See a list of public events below.) Read the full story
