If furniture is, to you, simply something under which dust bunnies breed, then the upcoming special program at the Thomas Wolfe Memorial might not be your thing. If, however, you've often wished armoires could talk and sideboards could reveal all the long-forgotten suppers over which they presided, then get thee to the Old Kentucky Home on Saturday, Aug. 13 when Leslie Klingner, furniture expert and curator of interpretation at the Biltmore Estate, will lead two tours of the memorial's antiques. Furniture styles include Gothic Revival, Renaissance Revival and Eastlake. 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. (45 minutes each). Free. ncculture.com.
