Wednesday November 17 | Charlotte: Evolution of a New South City

November 16, 2010 at 1:22 pm | Posted in Coming Up | Leave a comment

Much has been written about Charlotte’s ascent from small southern town to big banking city, but none so far have focused on how Charlotte has become a city with global connections while still maintaining its identity as a New South City. We’ll talk with the editors of a new book called Charlotte, NC: The Global Evolution of a New South City. We’ll find out how Southern culture and world-wide business combined to create the Charlotte that we know now and how the two sides of Charlotte’s “personality” depend on each other.
