RALEIGH
LYNN YORK
QUAIL RIDGE BOOKS & MUSIC—Author Lynn York is at it again. Her new novel, The Sweet Life picks up the story of the quirky inhabitants of Swan's Knob, a fictional, Pilot Mountain-like town. Born and raised in N.C., York says, "I try to make what is real to me real in my work." York will be at Quail Ridge tonight at 7 p.m. to discuss her writing and to relay, as always, the charisma of the South she loves: "Even though we have Hardee's and Wal-Mart, we still love traditional things, storytelling and music." For more info, visit www.quailridgebooks.com or call 828-1588. —Megan Stein

CARRBORO
PETER ROWAN & TONY RICE QUARTET
THE ARTSCENTER—Of the many grand moments on Quartet, the new collaboration between Peter Rowan and Tony Rice, one cut shines as to the state of acoustic roots music, a cover of Townes Van Zandt's "To Live Is to Fly." When a mandolin solo from Sharon Gilchrist hits, the future looks bright too. When Rowan sings of "the poetry and pickin' down the line," you can hear Townes reaching for his guitar in heaven. Tickets are $22-$25 for the 8:30 p.m. show. —Rick Cornell
