Good news for those of us here in the Trangle: the off-again, on-again North Carolina Festival of the Book is on-again. It's been renamed the North Carolina Literary Festival and will be held September 10-13, 2009, in Chapel Hill. It's even been given a new Web presence complete with illustrations by Daniel Wallace (Big Fish). So far, there's only been one announced writer, Brian Pickney, but if the 2006 lineup is a predictor of future success, there will be plenty more to follow.
And by then, the twins might be old enough that I'll be able to leave the house on the weekend. Whether or not I'll be awake while attending is another story.
