Save the Date: BookMarks


If you live in or near the Piedmont, or will be visiting here in September, save Sept. 10 for a visit to the BookMarks Festival in downtown Winston-Salem.
Not only will you enjoy a stirring encounter with literature in the midst of the galleries and restaurants of the arts district, but you'll be helping to support literacy programs and reading in the schools.
