It may be a closed industry event, but, having to do with books, booksellers and the publishing industry, ABA’s Winter Institute is bringing a “powerhouse of authors” to Asheville — a number of which will appear at public readings.
At last week’s annual bookseller event in Seattle, American Booksellers Association announced it will celebrate Winter Institute 2015 in WNC. Photo from ABA’s Facebook page.
May is just around the corner, along with a calendar-full of readings, booksignings, poems, short stories and autobiographical anecdotes. Donald David (pictured here) will read from his newly-released Tales from a Free-Range Childhood.
The roster includes other local writers Ron Rash, Sara Gruen and Stephanie Perkins, as well as many authors who visited Asheville last year.
