Melissa Stone is a second year English Literature student in UNCW's English MA program. Her concentrations and interests are in children's & YA lit, graphic novels & comic books, feminist/queer lit, and postmodern lit; however, the Harry Potter book series is her all time favorite. Her Amortentia Potion would smell like old books, fresh gardinias, and dried lavender. She enjoys the company of her three pesky but lovable cats at her home in downtown Wilmington and loves to bake delicious treats for family and friends.

Ways to Connect

Monday night, several members of the WHQR's Board of Directors of Friends of Public Radio volunteered at Good Shepherd center. As you can see from our slide show above, they had a great time preparing dinner for the shelter and giving back to the Wilmington community. Judging by the quality of the photos it seems as though they were more worried about working hard than they were about taking good photos!

Cultures collide when an American businessman (Tom Hanks) is sent to Saudi Arabia to close what he hopes will be the deal of a lifetime. Baffled by local customs and stymied by an opaque bureaucracy, he eventually finds his footing with the help of a wise-cracking taxi driver (Alexander Black) and a beautiful Saudi doctor (Sarita Choudhury).
