WLRL Fair a Success

Our second Write Local, Read Local Author Fair is now in the books. On November 11, we hosted 25 authors and introduced them to 85 readers. It felt so good to have 100+ literature-loving people in the library on a dreary Saturday morning!

We received positive comments such as:

  • “The local authors event was excellent”
  • “Thanks again for organizing such a warm-hearted and smoothly run event. Bravo!”
  • “It was such a pleasure to participate in the Book Fair… I really felt that, for those three hours, I was at the heart of our Black Mountain community.  It really does ‘take a village’ doesn’t it?”

We are looking forward to 2024!

New in 2023 – author readings! Local poet, author fair organizer and FOL board member, Clint Bowman, read from his recently published book during the event.
