For the 5th year, the small town of Burnsville, North Carolina opens its doors to more than thirty authors and hundreds of book lovers during the Carolina Mountains Literary Festival. The festival’s theme “Coming Home” guides the selection of participating authors.
Programming includes a seventeen-county community book-read featuring the novels of Tony Earley (right). The event also includes scholar-led panel discussions, author readings, storytelling, how-to sessions on oral history, and special presentations designed for high school students as well as those interested in regional culture and the connections between literature and business.
