SCROLL DOWN TO ORDER BOOKS!

IMPORTANT UPDATE: 

Out of an abundance of caution, we are shifting this event to a livestreaming platform instead of hosting this in person at the J.

This is in accordance with the CDC recommendation to avoid gatherings of 50 or more people and also an effort to limit social exposure for people who are more vulnerable to COVID-19 symptoms.

Important details: 

  • We will be using the Zoom platform to host discussions with the authors.
  • Zoom is a free web streaming platform. You can access the stream via your phone or computer.
  • In order to participate in the Zoom calls, you will need a link. Prior to the event, links will be emailed to everyone who has registered. Register for the festival here.
  • The book festival will now be free for all participants.
  • Books are available to order from Flyleaf Books and qualify for $1 shipping through the end of April. If you live in the Triangle and are open to **free** hand-delivery, please note that in the comments of your order.
