Native Places: Drawing as a Way to See will be one of the featured books in the 2020 Book Fair during this year’s North Carolina Book Festival. The Festival will take place from February 21-23 in the Contemporary Art Musem (CAM) in downtown Raleigh at 409 West Martin Street. The Book Fair will be held Saturday, Feb. 22. Doors open at 10 a.m. and close at 6 p.m.
The NC Book Festival is the state’s signature literary event. Co-directed by Jason Jefferies and Chris Tonelli, the Festival gives participants and attendees access to a diverse slate of local, national, and international writers and artists. Events include readings, panels, demonstrations, and lectures. The Festival showcases both traditional and non-traditional genres.
A core element of this year’s festival is the Book Fair, a bustling platform for local presses, NC authors, and other vendors to display their work before the thousands of people who attend the Fair.
Supported by publisher ORO Editions, Native Places will have its own table at the event where publicist Kim Weiss will display and sell copies fresh from the book’s third printing.* Author Frank Harmon will be on hand during mid-day hours to sign copies, as well.
“Frank and I can’t wait to experience the energy and enthusiasm for literature that the NC Book Festival generates,” Weiss said. “We’re so grateful to have the opportunity to introduce Native Places to such a diverse audience of book enthusiasts. It’s going to be a lot of fun!”
