UNC CAMPUS—In the middle of a summer (and fall) drought, Rain is finally coming to the Triangle—at least on the stage. Canada's Cirque Éloize, a leader in the trendy contemporary circus movement, brings its colorful mix of tumbling, contortion, acrobatics and dance to Memorial Hall and combines its athleticism with the unexpected. The waterworks start tonight at 7:30 p.m. Check out www.carolinaperformingarts.org for more info and ticket prices. —Karlie Justus

MCINTYRE'S FINE BOOKS—Published in 1963, James Baldwin's book The Fire Next Time is widely considered to be among the most influential books of the civil rights movement. Picking up the dialogue from Baldwin, Randall Kenan examines the state of race relations in post-Katrina America in his new work The Fire This Time. Kenan, a professor of creative writing at UNC-Chapel Hill, will read from his book tonight at McIntyre's in Fearrington Village. He will also be at the Regulator Bookshop in Durham tomorrow to discuss his work with acclaimed scholar and writer Tim Tyson. The McIntyre's event starts at 7 p.m. Visit www.fearrington.com or call 542-2121 for more information. —Ashley Roberts
