Sir Walter Raleigh made his mark on North Carolina, but never set foot here. A program tomorrow at UNC's Wilson Library will tell you what you didn't know about Raleigh and just may disprove some of your favorite myths.
Historian Mark Nicholls will discuss his new book, Sir Walter Raleigh: In Life and Legend (co-authored with Penry Williams). The free public program, sponsored by the North Carolina Collection and Friends of the Library, will begin at 5:45 p.m. in the Pleasants Family Assembly Room. A reception and a display of items from the Library’s Sir Walter Raleigh Collection will precede the talk at 5 p.m. in the main lobby. The Sir Walter Raleigh Rooms in the North Carolina Collection Gallery will be open to visitors until 5:45 p.m.
