I can’t imagine a business (other than mine) more rewarding than  being surrounded by books and connecting them with readers. Pittsboro, with fewer than 4000 residents, supports a bookstore with a large collection of used books, well Continue Reading

Afternoon Tea at Rosemary House 7 Jan 2014, 7:13 am

There are two topics of conversation that I try to avoid talking about with our B&B guests: religion, for obvious reasons, and politics, ditto.

Breathtaking 1 May 2012, 3:27 pm

  When you move to a new place, sooner or later you make your way to the public library. A small brick building, the Pittsboro Memorial Library.  Its front room held the books and staff desk while a back room served as meeting space. It was the smallest library I had ever seen, a busy place, overcrowded. The community college Continue Reading
