Are you looking for Book ‘Em North Carolina?

The annual Book ‘Em North Carolina Writers Conference and Book Fair is on hold temporarily. Please check back as we add more information on the next event date.

The event was founded by Patricia McClelland Terrell (author p.m.terrell), who also chaired the event for five years. In 2016, the torch was passed to Robeson Community College to continue into the future. However, many of the key people who have been instrumental have left their positions, including:

Mickey Gregory, Executive Director, Lumberton Visitors Bureau (retired)

Dr. Pamela Hilbert, President, Robeson Community College (now in Northern Virginia)

Dr. James Bass, Director of The Learning Center (now at University of North Carolina at Pembroke, Givens Performing Arts Center)

Additionally, in 2016 the area suffered damage from Hurricane Matthew, which set things back further.

We appreciate your interest in the event and when we resume, we will be posting information here and through the Facebook Page and Twitter feed.
