JOHNNY MOORE AND ART CHANSKY: THE BLUE DIVIDE

QUAIL RIDGE BOOKS & MUSIC, Raleigh THURSDAY, MARCH 5

Whichever side you take regarding the new ACC, there's no arguing that the latest conference-fluffing dilutes some of college basketball's greatest rivalries. Ideally, the ongoing Duke-UNC feud will survive, but stranger things have happened during these schools' 35-plus years of roundball frenzy. One was last season's opening Tobacco Road showdown, which, controversially, had to be postponed because of a crippling snowstorm. The ensuing hoo-ha is chronicled in the first chapter of The Blue Divide: Duke, North Carolina, and the Battle on Tobacco Road. Co-authored by area sports experts Art Chansky and Johnny Moore—both of whom will be present—this 258-page history lesson is an in-depth look at how this rivalry blossomed into a fan-driven, North Carolina sports civil war. 7 p.m., free, 3522 Wade Ave., Raleigh, 919-828-1588, www.quailridgebooks.com. —Eric Tullis
