It’s a big last day in the Triangle area for Barbados author Karen Lord. First up at 10 AM she’ll be the main guest on weekly local radio program Carolina Book Beat on WCOM-FM, which broadcasts to Chapel Hill and Carrboro on 103.5 FM, and streams online for pretty much anywhere with an Internet connection.
Then in the afternoon the Chapel Hill Public Library hosts, well to be more specific: “The Friends of the Chapel Hill Public Library host the popular Meet-the-Author Teas. The teas offer the public a chance to hear a published author read from and discuss their works. Refreshments are served at 3:30. The program with the author will run from 4:00 to 5:00. Free. Please come and listen! The program will take place in Meeting Room A.”
Finally, at 7 PM, Flyleaf Books hosts Karen for a reading and signing [Facebook Event], along with a just-announced special guest, Carrboro’s own Writers of the Future winner, Alex Wilson.
So! If you haven’t had a chance to catch Karen on her whirlwind tour of the Carolinas, here are your last chances.
Meanwhile! It’s quite a Monday in the Triangle, as also at 7 pm, the Durham County Library is hosting a Games and Narrative Panel Discussion with Richard Dansky, Mur Lafferty, Jason Morningstar, and Daniel Solis, in the 1st Floor Auditorium of the downtown Main Branch. “Whether we’re gathered around a table or squinting at a screen, we have always used games to create and share stories. Join local game designers and authors for a panel discussion on stories, literacy, and games (both on, and off, the screen).”
