27 Views of Durham, a recently released book from Eno Publishers, is a compilation of prose and poetry about the Bull City, as written by an eclectic group of Durham denizens and luminaries. It's a lovely way to learn about Durham's past, present, and what give it such as sense of place.
For this event, Steve Schewel, founder of the Independent Weekly, will moderate readings and a discussion with Rodrigo Dorfman, Adam Sobsey, Diane Daniel, Jean Anderson, Pierce Freelon, Ceil Cleveland and, in song, Rebecca Newton with Bob Vasile
Disclosure: Eno Publishers provided Durham Socialite with a review copy of 27 Views of Durham.

Based on interviews collected by choreographer Leah Wilks, “Secrets I Never Told My Mother” uses video design, audio documentary, and the movement of five dancers to explore the practice of secret- keeping, and the societal expectations and human reasoning that accompany it.
“Secrets I Never Told My Mother” has been collaboratively developed by choreographer Leah Wilks and a quintet of Triangle-based professional dancers (Nicola Bullock, Erin Casanega,Toni Craige, Lindsay Grey Leonard, andMeg Ralston-Asumendi) over a months-long process. Initially inspired by audio interviews, the soundscape incorporates snippets of these interviews with original music composed and recorded by Kaitlin Houlditch-Fair, Adam Lindquist, Will Ridenour and Elysse Thebner.
Augmenting the live performance is a stunning projection design by video artist Jon Haas, using the cutting-edge projection software ‘Isadora.’ This new technology allows for innovative interactivity between live performance and digital design, and the projection design has been developed in tandem with the choreography.
