Mystery Writers Share with Meredith fans
Margaret Maron and Nancy Pickard sat down and talked and compared notes about their mystery novels at Meredith College’s Friends of the Library event recently. Maron is a North Carolina native and married to former Meredith Art professor Joe Maron. Her latest novel, Designated Daughters, is the nineteenth book in the series featuring Judge Deborah Knott and set just outside of Raleigh in fictional Colleton County. She has won almost every award for Mystery writing there is and has also been honored with the North Carolina Award for Literature and the Order of the Long Leaf Pine.
Nancy Pickard may be a less familiar name since she is not North Carolina based. A prolific and honored mystery writer with both series novels and stand- alone novels, her work is characterized by its humor. Jenny Cain is the “lovely and chirpy” detective in a ten book series set in coastal Massachusetts. Pickard was selected to complete Virginia Rich’s The Twenty-seven Ingredient Chili Con Carne Murders, the fourth book in a culinary mystery series featuring Eugenia Potter

Follow the Discussion about Improving Public Transit in Wake County
CRC college and university representatives are involved with Wake County’s exploration about how to improve public transit. See two different programs about the overall project. One program is a taping of one of the community meetings reporting on many of the discussions and asking for feedback from community members across the County. The other short video is an overview of the project and includes some commentary from one of the student members of Transit Advisory Committee, Saint Augustine’s student Jill Ricks.
This is an important topic for CRC students, staff and faculty for getting to and from the campuses, around the city and to sister campuses for cross-registration, library use and more. The discussion so far has put a lot of emphasis on improved bus service but has also been exploring rapid bus transit and rapid rail transit. Discussions are continuing all around the County.
