City of Oaks
Fayetteville Street, a major thoroughfare in Raleigh, NC, connects the old State Capitol with the Convention Center. It is recognized as the city’s ceremonial center, where parades and seasonal events occur. Oak trees line the street, shedding leaves on the plentiful benches, and reminding visitors that they are in the “City of Oaks.” Columns adorned with silver oak motifs are lighted in the evening. Because it takes place in Raleigh, this year’s Bouchercon has been designated as Murder Under the Oaks. Art Taylor’s edited an anthology, with the same title, featuring stories by the conference’s honored guests and selected contributors.
