The Caldwell Summer book club invites you to join us in reading our final book for the summer, Abraham Verghese’s Cutting for Stone.
We will be meeting August 5, at 6:00pm in D.H. Hill Library’s Presentation Practice room to discuss the book. The discussion will be followed by a casual dinner at Mitch’s Tavern on Hillsborough street at 7:30pm.
We request the pleasure of your company on this occasion to share enjoyable time amongst current fellows and fellow alumni. If you cannot physically attend the discussion, feel free to email your thoughts on the book to nmandav2@ncsu.edu, to be shared during the discussion.

Caldwell Fellowbration

The Caldwell Fellowbration on Saturday, February 22, was so much fun! 185 current Caldwell Fellows, alumni, and guests enjoyed delicious food catered by PR@ The Poole, great music courtesy of DJ Brooks Prior, dancing and lip syncing orchestrated by the Fellows. The venue, the Carol Poole Clubhouse at the Lonnie Poole Golf Course, is spectacular and offers a lovely view of downtown Raleigh.
