Michael Greer, bookbinder and owner of Leatherbound Book Works, will discuss how he became a bookbinder and what he is doing to remain relevant practicing an ancient technology in a very modern world. While living and teaching in Morocco, Michael made a chance visit to a bookbinder that led to a ten-month apprenticeship and ultimately a new business. Master binder Abdelfetah Rahali worked for more than forty years in the once thriving shop and was preparing to retire without passing on his knowledge. By watching, reading technical manuals and practicing on his own books, Michael learned the trade. He continues to hone his skills as he figures out how to bring traditional leather bindings into people’s homes.

Michael taught for 14 years both in the United States and abroad before setting up shop as a bookbinder in his basement in Durham. He now runs a bindery that specializes in turning electronic documents into fine leather bound books. (joellanehouse)

Historians often miss the importance of the Old North State in the American War of Independence. Until Lord Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown, however, 1781 had looked like a frustrating, stalemate year for the patriot cause—largely due to the Continental Army’s huge thorn-in-the-side lodged in coastal North Carolina. Suzanne Adair, author of a crime fiction series set during the southern theater of the war, will discuss the British Army’s audacious, confident gambit for North Carolina that tied the hands of Continental commanders during most of 1781, nearly costing patriots their victory.

Award-winning novelist Suzanne Adair is a Florida native who lives in Raleigh. Her suspense and thrillers transport readers to the Southern theater of the Revolutionary War, where she brings historic towns, battles, and people to life. She fuels her creativity with Revolutionary War reenacting and visits to historic sites. When she’s not writing, she enjoys cooking, dancing, hiking, and spending time with her family. Her sixth book, Deadly Occupation, will be released October 2015. For more information, check her web site (http://www.SuzanneAdair.net/). (joellanehouse)
