Author-Dr. Patrice J. Carter to attend 2015 Book "Em North Carolina Writers Event!
By: Dr. Patrice J. Carter
This event brings together at least 75 authors under one roof to speak on a variety of subjects and to sell their books. A portion of the proceeds raised from the event (a minimum of 40%) is given to the community - Robeson County and Lumberton, North Carolina - for the purpose of increasing literacy and reducing crime.
The event is free and open to the public. All ages are encouraged to attend. There will be authors with children's books as well as authors from a large variety of genres: mystery/suspense, romance, historical, non-fiction, and much more.
* The Book 'Em Foundation was founded by suspense author P.M. Terell and Mark Kurney (Waynesboro, VA Police Officer) as a partnership between authors and law enforcement. The mission of The Book 'Em Foundation is to raise public awareness of the correlation between high illiteracy rates and high crime rates.
