Beginning at 12:00 noon on Sunday, September 20th with a "Moveable Feast" -- a sit-down lunch where authors come to sit and talk with you right at your table, Triangle Reads features an afternoon of panels and book signings from some of your favorite -- and soon to be favorite! -- writers. You will also get to tour Trio -- the debut installation of art and music inspired by sixteen beloved works of Southern literature. Read more about the Trio concept on the facebook page.

Books will be for sale from area independent bookstores, and every ticket includes a $20 voucher for the book tables.

    1. I've done it before, but it was very different and just for booksellers. I do need to find out more. Last time I had raging laryngitis, too.


Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
