Clyde Edgerton, noted novelist, a Guggenheim Fellow and the recipient of the NC Award for Literature, will present a program about the Warren-Haley Cemetery located in Umstead State Park.  The cemetery, which is still active, is where many of Edgerton’s ancestors are interred.  Edgerton will share intriguing stories about his family and their lives in the area that would become the park.  Please join the Friends of the Page-Walker as we welcome this special guest who will stir and entertain us with the passion he feels about his ancestors buried here in Cary.

Event is free and you do not need to register.
