Ed Williams is a Charlotte writer and editor. He retired in 2008 after 25 years as editor of the editorial pages of The Charlotte Observer, where he contributed to two projects that won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.

In 2014 Lorimer Press published a collection of his work, "Liberating Dixie: An Editor's Life, from Ole Miss to Obama.”

 Composer and pianist, Anne Trenning’s background in music stems from a lifelong studious pursuit of the piano. 

Trenning’s sound blends her classical training with her love of new age, gospel, Celtic, jazz, classic rock, folk and Americana. She has become known both for composing strong melodies, and for arranging memorable tunes in new ways. Her music has an organic quality that derives from her love of nature.

Trenning attended Converse College in Spartanburg, South Carolina on a music scholarship, and earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music and History. When not writing, recording, or performing, she teaches piano performance.
