NC Literary Hall of Fame




Clyde EdgertonWRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC—Wilmington author Clyde Edgerton is arguably best-known for his five New York Times notable books and his "ability to shine a clear, warm light on the dark things of life without becoming sugary" (The New Yorker). But he's also father to four kids ranging in age from six to thirty-one, and he's learned some things along the way.

With his newest work, Papadaddy's Book for New Fathers: Advice to Dads of All Ages, this terrific storyteller gives wise counsel to new parents, both fathers and mothers, young and old.

Over the summer, Clyde was interviewed on CBS This Morning about his newest venture. To view the segment, click here.

Clyde will give the Keynote Address at the North Carolina Writers' Network 2013 Fall Conference at 8:00 pm on Friday, November 15, at the Holiday Inn Resort in Wrightsville Beach. He will also lead a fiction workshop on Saturday, "Fiction Writing: Some Basics," where he will lead a brisk but informative discussion on the fundamentals of writing good fiction.

The Fall Conference attracts hundreds of writers from around the country and provides a weekend full of activities that include a luncheon, an annual banquet, readings, workshop tracks in several genres, open mic sessions, and an exhibit hall packed with literary organizations, presses, and publishers. Conference faculty includes professional writers from North Carolina and beyond.

Registration for the NCWN 2013 Fall Conference is now open. For a complete list of workshops, to see the weekend's full schedule, or to register, visit
