Event hopes to encourage a love of literature

September 25, 2017 by  

The 6th annual Literary Festival of Charlotte is taking place next month. The theme of this year’s event is ‘Empowering Communities’.

The event’s organizers hope to empower communities by promoting a love of art and literature in the public, beginning with children. The activities taking place during this festival, it is hoped, will go a long way in doing that.

There will be plenty of entertainment during the day including rhythmic song performances, author readings, dance, drumming, and storytelling. A number of local and state authors are expected to be on hand to sign books.

The festival is set to feature many local vendors who will be selling books, arts and crafts, and food. Applications for vendors are still being accepted until this Wednesday, September 27. Fees are $100 for food vendors and $75 for business or arts and crafts vendors ($125 for a double booth).

Vendors, some who may come from nearby Pineville, will probably be providing promotional products such as postcards and pens to those who stop by their booths.

The Literary Festival of Charlotte will be held at the Little Rock Cultural Center on October 7 from 10:30 AM to 6:00 PM. There is no admission charge.
