So if you’re not already lined out for this coming weekend, may I humbly suggest a really cool literary event — the Read Local Book Festival in Durham. Sporting a tagline of, “Shop local. Eat local. Read local,” it’s multi-media and also focused on writerly pursuits in the greater Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill vicinity. I’m honored to be among the participants.
Moderated by my colleague Grayson Currin, music editor of INDY Week (and a fellow who has been mentioned in this space before), the panel is titled “Writing About Music” and it happens at 5 p.m. Sunday at Durham Central Park, rain or shine. I’ll also be at the book-seller’s tent before and after, with copies of “Losering” will be for sale. Please come on out to heckle or just say hi.
There’s lots more to Read Local than just the music-writing panel. Check out the overall schedule here.
