If you are within driving distance of Winston-Salem, NC, there is an amazing book festival taking place on Sept. 10 in the Downtown Arts District on Sixth and Trade Streets.Bookmarks is a free annual one-day street book festival featuring readings, discussions, book signings, workshops, storytelling, demonstrations, and performances with more than 30 authors, illustrators, and chefs representing all genres.
There are some terrific writers on the schedule, including Lisa See, Tom Perrotta, and Kimberla Lawson Roby. For more info, click here. I plan to stock up on books there, too (one can never have enough). Hope to see you there!
