To my readers in and around North Carolina: I’ll be in your neck of the woods on September 6 and 7, visiting Wake Forest University and attending the BookMarks literary festival in Winston-Salem. This festival is free and open to the public.

On Friday, September 6,  at 3:00 pm, I’ll have a Book Talk & Signing in the Special Collections and Archives Reading Room on the 6th Floor of the Z. Smith Reynolds Library of Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem NC. It is free and open to the public. A special exhibition including books mentioned in the All Souls Trilogy will be on display.

On Saturday, September 7 from 11:15 am – 1:15 pm, Bookmarks Literary Talk and Signing.  This will be my solo talk (11:15-12), followed by a book signing (12-1:15) on the Trade St. Stage (at Trade and 7th in downtown Winston-Salem).

And later that same Saturday afternoon, from 2:45 – 3:30 pm , I will be on the “Book Clubs Favorites” Panel with Debbie Macomber and Ann B. Ross on the Main Stage at 6th and Trade St. in downtown Winston-Salem.

If you can’t find me I’m eating biscuits, shrimp and grits, or just soaking up the joy associated with being back in one of my favorite states in the nation.
