The North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame celebrates and promotes the state’s rich literary heritage by commemorating its leading authors and encouraging the continued flourishing of great literature. It is more than a museum housing photographs and archives. Working closely with libraries and schools, the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame honors North Carolina writers through programs, services, and opportunities for children and adults.
Inaugurated in 1996 under the leadership of then-NC Poet Laureate Sam Ragan, the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame is a program of the North Carolina Writers’ Network.
