Not far from the Duke Arts Annex, on Burch Avenue, there is a house that is so covered in sculptures, it’s practically a museum. The pieces are made of wood, metal gears, old prescription bottles and the odd View-Master—a camera-like toy that displays images through the viewfinder. The house’s wrap-around porch doubles as an outdoor studio. Stacked next to a workbench are drawers filled with nuts and bolts and buckets overflowing with scraps of old wood and miscellaneous junk—an old xylophone, a small television. Behind the work area, a stained glass window hangs from the roof.

He continues: “And the word was with God, and the word was God.” His audience sits on plastic white chairs and wooden benches. The speaker is Allan Gurganus, one of several writers who have come to “testify” on behalf of the Quail Ridge Books and Music store for its 28th anniversary celebration.
