    Springmoor Presents…Dr. Elliot Engel

    The Importance of Being Ernest Hemingway

    Dr. Engel presents an examination of Hemingway’s brilliant writings and also an exploration of the mythical figure he created of himself.

    Professor Elliot Engel is considered the most insightful, personable, and entertaining academic keynote speaker to come out of academia in the last fifty years. His witty, engaging speaking style imparts hard, factual information, leaving his audiences virtually spellbound, yet charmed by periods of laughter and flashes of insight. Using anecdotes, analysis, and large doses of humor, he gives new insights into the backgrounds, accomplishments, and lives of the great masters of English and American literature.

    The Guiding Lights of North Carolina with Bett Padjett

    Bett Padgett is a North Carolina native and has taught guitar and music since 1979. She retired from teaching music at  NCSU in 2009 but continues to teach groups and private lessons at home on many forms of guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele and theory.

    She devotes much of her time researching her state’s vast history and capturing it in music.  Whether it’s a trip to the Outer Banks and tales of terrifying shipwrecks or the tragic Indian Removal Act in the Trail of Tears, she brings to life these stories through music. She recounts many of our state’s calamities and humorous events.

    Bett has recorded eight albums. In 1998 while researching the history of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, she became enamored by the light, it’s plight with the sea and those who wanted to save it. It lead to a song which then lead her to the Outer Banks Lighthouse Society who were advocates to save the lighthouse by relocating it. In her opinion, this was the most responsible solution and would not damage the environment. She then wrote many other songs about the lighthouse for a  compilation entitled Hatteras, If a Lighthouse Could Speak.

    Bett has served on the board of the Outer Banks Lighthouse Society since 1999 and as president for ten years. She enjoys sharing her knowledge of our state’s tall treasures and telling the hidden stories which are often not found in print.

    Join us for a wonderful afternoon of music and storytelling.

Over the years, if you have eaten at the Mandarin House, The Abacus, The Great Mall of China, The China Cafe and Grille and most recently, the Duck and Dumpling, then you have enjoyed David’s inspired menus.

    A Pan-Asian menu with touches of Chinese, Vietnamese and Malaysian cuisines. As you might expect, there is also a special emphasis on noodle and dumpling dishes.
