2016-17 History Lecture Series: The Fable of the Keys
Thursday, October 27, 3-4:30 pm in Room 138-140

These days you probably spend a good deal of time at a keyboard. Even though we use phones and tablets, our fingers spend a lot of time positioned on asdfghjkl. You may have wondered how we got that layout and you may have heard claims that some alternative keyboard arrangements are more efficient than the qwerty arrangement. It turns out that the claims of qwerty's inferiority are grossly exaggerated.

Come out to hear Dr. Steve Margolis, professor of economics at N.C. State University, explain why this story is not true and what this fable tells us about the efficiency of markets. He will be giving a talk at Raleigh Charter on Thursday, October 27 from 3-4:30 in rooms 138-140. All students and parents are welcome. History teachers will be awarding extra credit opportunities and there will be light refreshments provided.

"Just So Stories" Presented November 3-6!
RCHS Drama

Rudyard Kipling’s "Just So Stories" folktales of a time period set in the beginning of years when the world was so new. Playwright Bren Dubay uses the relationship between two sisters, one in college and the other still a child, to tie four of the stories together in her humorous dramatization, with a thread that subtly suggests "classics are fun."

The stories include "How the Camel Got His Hump," "How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin," "The Elephant's Child," and "The Cat That Walked by Herself." As Judith and Amanda engage in their old rituals with “playstories,” a playroom table becomes a camel, stuffed toys come to life, a primitive elephant's shoe-like nose stretches into the kind of trunk that elephants wear today, and a bi-colored-python-rock-snake slithers around the stage. Produced by special arrangement with Family Plays of Woodstock, Illinois. Tickets are $10.

Performance Dates and Times
Thursday, November 3 at 5:30 pm
Friday, November 4 at 6:30 pm
Saturday, November 5 at 2 pm and 5 pm
Sunday, November 6 at 3 pm

Beginning on Wednesday, October 26, tickets will be sold at lunch in the Atrium for $10.
