Ann Simmons sent you this message from Lowcountry Creative Writing Forum on Meetup:

"Hi Dave,

I hope you can share information about the literary arts events being offered during this year's North Charleston Arts Festival. They include a book signing, a self-publishing workshop, and a poetry reading, and they are all FREE. Complete festival details can be found at NorthCharlestonArtsF­est.com. 

Book Signing & Author Reading
Saturday, May 4
2:00-5:00pm
Mr. K’s Used Books, Music and More, 5070 International Boulevard, North Charleston, SC 29418
Fans of traditional southern literary fiction, suspense, and mystery won’t want to miss this book event with Charleston, SC, author Sean Keefer. Set in the Lowcountry and drawn from his experience as a lawyer, his debut novel, The Trust, takes readers on a journey full of unexpected twists and turns. Published in 2011, the legal thriller was received well among critics and recognized with several national awards. He has recently completed his second book, tentatively titled The Solicitor. Hear about Sean’s path to becoming a writer and writing his first two novels, and be one of the first to hear an excerpt from his newest book.

Writer's Workshop - Publishing, Distributing, and Selling Your Physical Book
Tuesday, May 7
6:00-7:00pm
North Charleston City Hall, Buist Conference Rm. (3rd fl.), 2500 City Hall Lane, North Charleston, SC 29406
CreateSpace, an Amazon.com company, is the leading provider of independent publishing tools that empower authors to produce, polish, publish and distribute their printed work to customers around the world. Join representatives from the company for an overview of how to use the platform and publish your work in print.

Poetry Reading
Wednesday, May 8
7:00-7:45pm
The Sparrow, 1078 East Montague Avenue, North Charleston, SC 29405
Marcus Amaker, referred to by many as an “all-around Renaissance guy” and dubbed “one of Charleston’s most unique” by Charleston Magazine, will take the stage  for a moving and mesmerizing presentation of his latest collection of poems. His words are sure to strike a chord with anyone who reads or hears them, inspired by everything from his family and his love life, to the places he’s lived and tragedies like Hurricane Katrina and the earthquake in Haiti. Amaker has published four books of poetry, with the most recent, The Present Presence, released in 2011. He is a graphic designer with Jazz Artists of Charleston, among others, and editor of Art Mag.

Kind regards,
Ann Simmons
