Great Book Caper Reading Festival

One of the best things about working for the North Carolina Literary Map is the chance to meet people throughout the state and attend great events like the Great Book Caper Reading Festival earlier this month. Held in Salisbury, NC, this festival is put on through a cooperative effort between Rowan-Salisbury Schools and Rowan Public Library.  It featured scavenger hunts and clues for kids, as well as a great selection of local authors and books.  The NC Lit Map talked with local book enthusiasts and had a great time!

NC Writers' Network Conference Success

The North Carolina Literary Map had a great time on Saturday at the NC Writers' Network Conference.  We set up a table in the MHRA building on UNCG's campus and met with authors, publishers, and aspiring writers.  We also had some great author submissions that we'll be entering into the Lit Map this week. Thanks to all who stopped by!
