BOOK 'EM NORTH CAROLINA
This Saturday I will be a guest author at the Book 'Em North Carolina Writers Conference and Book Fair in Lumberton, NC. This inagural event is bringing together more than 75 authors, including two New York Times bestselling authors, Carla Neggers and Michael Palmer, more than 24 award-winning authors, and authors of almost every genre for all ages under one roof to sell and sign their books, participate in panel discussions and talks, network and interact with fans one-on-one.
The event will be held at Robeson Community College, located at the crossroads of Interstates 95 and 74. The purpose of The Book 'Em Foundation and this event is to raise public awareness of the link between high crime rates and high illiteracy rates. Proceeds from the Book 'Em North Carolina book fair will go directly to increasing literacy in Robeson County, North Carolina and to reducing crime in the area. Attendance is FREE and open to the public. All authors and publishers are contributing 40% of the sales price of their books to this worthwhile cause.
