  1. Is this an annual event? If yes, I would like to learn more about being a volunteer.

  2. Rhesa, thanks for your interest. The Literary Festival has, to date, been an every-other-year event, rotating among the largest university libraries in the Triangle (UNC, NCSU, and Duke). Specifics of the 2011 festival are still being planned, but every festival in the past has needed volunteers, so do stay tuned.

  5. Ann (and others): Thank you for your interest. The next scheduled host for the festival is the library at North Carolina State University. I do not believe a festival date has yet been announced. We will post more when details are available.
