Celebrate Shelby Stephenson!

Shelby's getting inducted into the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame on October 12, and to honor this fine friend, we're staging poetry in the Smith-Yelverton Typewriter Museum at 4 p.m.; serving barbecue at 6:00 or so, and presenting music at 7. Poetry & music are free; reservations for dinner are required. We'll have a cost for that when the menu has been finalized, but you know Stephenson's Barbecue will be the main course.

Induction into the Hall, which is housed at Weymouth in Southern Pines, will be at 2 p.m. on October 12. Also being inducted will be Betty Adcock, Ron Bayes, and Jaki Shelton Green.
