Woo-hoo! Book 'Em is Coming to NC!
I’m thrilled to be attending this event and part of the committee. If you are an author, you don’t want to miss this book festival! We have a blast at Book ‘Em events.
Here’s the info from the website - and author registration is now open:
Book 'Em North Carolina is scheduled for Saturday, February 25, 2012. The event will be held at Robeson Community College in Lumberton, North Carolina
Book 'Em North Carolina is an innovative book fair that brings together dozens of authors under one roof to sell and sign their books, participate in panel discussions and talks, network and interact with fans one-on-one.
Attendance is FREE and open to the public.
The Book 'Em Foundation was founded by suspense author p.m.terrell and Waynesboro, Virginia Police Officer Mark Kearney as a partnership between authors and law enforcement. The mission of The Book 'Em Foundation is to raise public awareness of the correlation between high illiteracy rates and high crime rates.
The Book 'Em North Carolina annual event brings together at least 75 authors under one roof to speak on a variety of subjects and to sell their books. A portion of the proceeds raised from the event (a minimum of 40%) is given to the community - Robeson County and Lumberton, North Carolina - for the purpose of increasing literacy and reducing crime.
For information on how these events have helped raise funds for literacy and anti-crime efforts in various communities, visit The Book 'Em Foundation.
Please join us - it's the best time you'll ever have at a book festival.
