UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Reading ‘Wine to Water’

Looking for a good book to read this summer? Join the incoming freshmen and read “Wine to Water: A Bartender’s Quest to Bring Clean Water to the World.”

The book was adopted by the UNCG Freshman Summer Reading Project, designed to introduce students to the intellectual life of our university.

“Wine to Water” was written by Doc Hendley, a Raleigh bartender who learned about the shortage of clean water in countries like the Sudan and dreamed up a way to help. The result is Wine to Water, a nonprofit organization that seeks to provide clean water to the needy around the world.

Hendley, named a CNN hero in 2009, will speak at 7 p.m., Sept. 12, in Elliott University Center’s Cone Ballroom.
