Book 'Em NC

Book 'Em Dan...no, that's 
Book 'Em North Carolina. As in "Buy a Book and Stop a Crook!"


The purpose of The Book 'Em Foundation and this event is to raise public awareness of the link between high crime rates and high illiteracy rates. Proceeds from the Book 'Em North Carolina book fair will go directly to increasing literacy in Robeson County, North Carolina and to reducing crime in the area.


Book 'Em North Carolina Writers Conference and Book Fair brings together more than 75 authors, including two New York Times bestselling authors, Carla Neggers and Michael Palmer, more than 24 award-winning authors, and authors of almost every genre for all ages under one roof to sell and sign their books, participate in panel discussions and talks, network and interact with fans one-on-one. (Extracted from Book 'Em NC)


The event is scheduled for Saturday, February 25, 2012, from 9:30 am until 4 at the Robeson Community College in Lumberton, North Carolina.


And it's FREE! 


Is this a cool idea or what? What a great cause! 
I'll be there discussing inspy romance. Care to share events that your area sponsors to promote literacy?
