EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES THROUGH LITERATURE AND ART


EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES THROUGH LITERATURE AND ART


A single moment - that's all it takes to influence a young person's life. As a stakeholder in Charlotte's communities, you know this. The Literary Festival of Charlotte (formerly called the Charlotte Book Fair) organically formed in 2011 because a small group had a passion and goal to ignite young people's love for reading. Over the past year, the team's love of reading has evolved into a love of literacy that explores the natural integration with culture, art, music, entertainment and science. Thus, the team has evolved the focus from a book fair to a literary festival.

Our primary method has been to host a free day long event each October offering storytelling, rhythmic song, dance, drumming and enlightening author readings. Giving the youth access to literacy experiences fosters imaginations, innovation, and positively affects their communities and families.
