    If you’re looking for the WERU News Report, you’re in the right place – we’re just changing the name to better reflect the ever-changing mix of independent news, views and culture that we feature every week. Some weeks we report on issues that are in the news and have guests in the studio that can answer questions from callers, and other times – like today- we’re going to be taking things in a different direction.

    Today we take you to “Queen City Cellar Tellers”, a monthly storytelling event in Bangor, where we hear stories told by Ilze Petersons, Einstein Hickman and Carol Rosinski on this month’s theme of “peace”, and then keeping with that theme, we talk with Dan Avener, one of the organizers of this weekend’s 2nd annual Belfast Peace Festival.
