Tune in to UNC-TV tonight, Tuesday, October 9, at 7:30 pm! The weekly program “North Carolina Now” will feature the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame and, although we haven’t seen the final cut, we’re pretty sure NCWN Executive Director Ed Southern will be on to talk about it.
This feature coincides nicely with the upcoming 2012 NC Literary Hall of Fame inductions on Sunday, October 14, at 2:00 pm at the Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities in Southern Pines. This year’s inductees are Maya Angelou, Kathryn Stripling Byer, and John Lawson. The ceremony is free and open to the public.
We know there’s playoff baseball on tonight, but we encourage you to flip the channel at 7:30 and watch this segment. Between the upcoming NC Literary Hall of Fame inductions and yesterday’s unveiling of the Literary Map of North Carolina, this is a historic time. And it’s an exciting time to be a writer in the Tar Heel State.
