In our own backyard next weekend, we'll host literary giants! The last time NC State hosted the NC Literary Festival was back in 2004.
Here are the details and hope you can make a few events. I'll be at the NC Literary Hall of Fame event on Sunday, April 6th at 5pm.
Also, the Spring NCWN Conference is all day at UNC-Greensboro on Sat. April 12th. Details are at www.ncwriters.org
Join us for the 2014 NC Literary Festival! Designed with everyone in mind, the festival includes author readings and discussions, performances, book signings, children's activities and book sales. The free event features spectacular writers such as Pulitzer Prize winners Junot Diaz, Richard Ford and Paul Muldoon; National Book Award winners James McBride and William T. Vollman; North Carolina writers Jaki Shelton Green, Allan Gurganus, Lee Smith and Elizabeth Spencer; best-selling authors Lev Grossman, Peter Straub, Karen Joy Fowler and R.L. Stine; NC State’s Department of English faculty authors John Balaban, Wilton Barnhardt, John Kessel, Dorianne Laux, Thomas Lisk, Jill McCorkle, Sheila Smith McKoy, Juliana Makuchi Nfah-Abbenyi, Elaine Neil Orr, Jon Thompson, Cat Warren and Walt Wolfram; and many other writers.
Check the NC Literary Festival website for details, including a full schedule, event locations, and parking information. The NC Literary Festival is hosted on a rotating basis by the NC State Libraries, the Duke University Libraries and the UNC-Chapel Hill Libraries.

See you in April!
