Posted on 5 Sep 2008 by Matthew Tyndall
If you’ve been feeling especially festive lately, this weekend is for you. Charlotte is playing host to a number of local festivals including the Charlotte Literary Festival. The CLF is going to have various speakers and authors throughout the day including Sci-Fi author Terry Brooks, Susan L. Taylor (Editorial Director of ESSENCE Magazine), Karrine Steffans (author of Confessions of a Video Vixen), and home town celeberity and author Mike Minter. The CLF is also raffling off a TV as well as other prizes. It runs from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm at The Charlotte Convention Center, and admission is $10..
There are also two cultural festivals this weekend, the Yiasou Greek Festival and the Festival of India. Both festivals will bring their unique culture and history to visitors as well as a wide range of tasty food.
Be sure to get your friends together this weekend for a great experience of literature and different cultures. CLT Blog will be hitting all of the festivals and will bring you some artifacts next week.
