UNCW’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, or CIE, has unveiled the business sector’s answer to match-making. 

Anne Langan from Friends of the Library and Leslie Hossfeld from UNCW tell us about an upcoming visit from renowned folklorist Dr. William Ferris.  His free presentation at 2:00 on Saturday, April 26 at the Northeast Library is titled The Storied South: Voices of Writers and Artists.
