Couplet: Two Days of Verse

Gwenyfar Rohler, Overlord

If you want to celebrate literary pursuits of any kind--anything from Banned Books to Adult Puppet Shows--Old Books on Front Street is the place to be.  Owner Gwenyfar Rohler helps our community make note of the gems our distracted culture might let slip by, gems like poetry.   

Poetry requires time and reflection and a dash of focus to enjoy.  If you feel you've been too busy to roll around in the delightful rays of verse, this weekend (April 18 & 19) is a wonderful opportunity.  The heavy lifting has already been done.

Friday Feedback for April 10, 2015

We celebrated a successful campaign!

Listener AJ wrote last Friday:

I just heard Cleve read Anonymous's very harsh criticism of the female staff's occasional silliness (shrillness??) during the recent fund raising week and I could not disagree more. WHQR's fundraising weeks are successful because they are fun, casual and listeners occasionally get to hear the normally very professional, serious staff -- male and female --being silly. We get to know them better, and that's a good thing. It might not work for every NPR station, but it works here in oh so casual Wilmington. I say keep it up, I love it!
