Visit Us at Bookmarks on Saturday

Best as we can recollect, the last time we exhibited somewhere was October of 2019, so it’s been almost two years since the North Carolina Writers’ Network has been able to interact in-person at a large-scale event.

We always look forward to the Bookmarks Festival of Books & Authors, but even more so this year. It’s a chance for staff to spend time together, soaking in the sun and some amazing literary programming; more importantly, it’s a chance for us to spend time with you, to talk about who you’re seeing, what you’re reading, and what your writing goals are.

This Saturday, September 25, we’ll be at Booth 8 on the corner of Holly and Poplar at the Bookmarks Festival of Books & Authors from about 10 am until close. Someone from the staff will be at the booth all day, and whoever it is will be excited to talk with you, even if we’re a littly rusty at making face-to-face conversation.

NCWN Executive Director Ed Southern will participate in a panel “Ideas of Home” with NCWN Trustee Annette Saunooke Clapsaddle and NY Times Bestselling Author Jason Mott, at 1:00 pm in the Calvary Moravian Church.

The North Carolina Writers’ Network is the sponsor of “Books & Brews” with Wiley Cash and Jason Mott, which happens at 5:30 pm on Friday, September 24, in the 4th Street Breezeway between Bookmarks and Footnote. Tickets required.
