Bill Young/Colleen Thomas & Co and Natalie Marrone & The Dance Cure @ Reynolds Industries Theatre
Jun 23 @ 8:00 pm

Bill Young/Colleen Thomas & Co. revive Young’s 30 year-old Interleaving, a piece combining four separate dances, For Wall Unfolding (an all female quintet), Double Bill (a trio) and two quartets, Music Minus One and Sambosamba. This unusual choreographic concept uses these four dances that have traditional beginnings, middles and ends, but instead of a linear presentation of those sections, Young has grouped them together: all four beginnings are performed sequentially, then all four middles and, finally, all four ends. The evening will begin with a performance by North Carolina’s Natalie Marrone and the Dance Cure, chosen from eighteen entries by a jury of local arts presenters consisting of Aaron Greenwald, Executive Director of Duke Performances, Sharon Moore, Director of NC State LIVE, and Amy Russell, Director of Programming for Carolina Performing Arts.

Daniel Wallace – Extraordinary Adventures: A Novel @ McIntyre's Books
Jun 24 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

One of PopSugar’s Best 2017 Spring Books for Women

A large-hearted and optimistic novel, ‘Extraordinary Adventures’ is the latest from the New York Times bestselling Daniel Wallace.

Edsel Bronfman works as a junior executive shipping clerk for an importer of Korean flatware. He lives in a seedy neighborhood and spends his free time with his spirited mother. Things happen to other people, and Bronfman knows it. Until, that is, he gets a call from operator 61217 telling him that he’s won a free weekend at a beachfront condo in Destin, Florida. But there’s a catch: the offer is intended for a couple, and Bronfman has only seventy-nine days to find someone to take with him.

The phone call jolts Bronfman into motion, initiating a series of truly extraordinary adventures as he sets out to find a companion for his weekend getaway. Open at last to the possibilities of life, Bronfman now believes that anything can happen. And it does.

Daniel Wallace is the J. Ross MacDonald Distinguished Professor of English at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he directs the Creative Writing Program. He is the author of the novels ‘Big Fish’, ‘Ray in Reverse’, ‘The Watermelon King’, ‘Mr. Sebastian and the Negro Magician’, and ‘The Kings and Queens of Roam’.
