NC History, Mystery, and More virtual event with Wake County Public Libraries

Join Wake County Public Libraries for a virtual program series about all things North Carolina. Explore the many authors who call the Old North State home. Discover an abandoned speakeasy and other hidden histories you pass every day in our capital city, Raleigh. Learn about paranormal investigative techniques with a local ghost group. Celebrate the endurance of the enslaved and Indigenous to persevere in the harsh conditions of the Great Dismal Swamp. Learn about Appalachia's King of Moonshine who was a craftsman and outlaw until the end. What happened to that 16th-century Roanoke colony on the Outer Banks that was “lost” for all time and is one of our most enduring mysteries? All this and more await when you embark on a virtual tour of North Carolina History, Mystery and More! 

All events are virtual.
