I got the pleasure to be on WBTV with the awesome Christine Sperow Monday, Sept. 14 to discuss three books you’ll all want to read. You can check out the clip from my segment by clicking here.
If you watched the segment, yay! If you didn’t, why not? Here’s another chance. Click here. It’s important!
So, as I mentioned on air, I wanted to give a little bit more information about Carolina Broadway and Verse & Vino.
Carolina Broadway Theatre, located in Hickory, NC, creates Broadway’s next generation of performers. CBT provides a transition into the professional world for aspiring artists. Productions involve guest stars and artistic staff selected from LA & NY, who become mentors and business contacts for these young aspirants. The Imaginary by A.F. Harrold, the first book mentioned in segment, is currently being workshopped at CBT with Broadway actors. What an amazing opportunity for one and all!
Alice in Wonderland continues to astound and create new stories 150 years after its original release. This fall, Gregory Maguire will be in Charlotte as part of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation’s Verse & Vino on his book tour for After Alice. In true Macguire style, he takes a side story from Alice in Wonderland and creates a quirky novel all his own. Get caught up on all things Alice with The Story of Alice by Robert Douglas-Fairhurst before Macguire releases his book!
A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson is well-recognized and loved by a lot of folks. I couldn’t get into it, but that doesn’t mean you should read it! It has not ties to any community events, but we could create one.
Thanks for watching and reading with me!
