June Program: Bookmarks! The Annual Festival of Books and Authors — and So Much More!
Speaker: Ginger Hendricks, MFA, Executive Director of Bookmarks
Many of us know about Bookmarks’ Annual Festival of Books and Authors. We have volunteered at several venues of this highly successful event, which attracted 12,500 participants last September. The N&N Book Club also sponsored a table at Bookmark’s Moveable Feast, a January event at which book lovers sit eight to a table and welcome a new author every ten minutes.
Those events are only part of the organization’s literary contribution to the Triad. Want to learn more? Don’t miss our June 28 General Meeting, where Ginger Hendricks, Executive Director of Bookmarks, will broaden our awareness of other programs designed to celebrate literary arts and to connect readers and writers.
Ms. Hendricks will share insights about the Authors in Schools Program, through which Bookmarks works with area teachers to incorporate authors and their books into the curriculum. In recent years, featured authors have included Isabel Allende, Lemony Snicket, Tavis Smiley, and Gregory Maguire. We will hear about the Summer Reading Program, targeting students from kindergarten through high school, as well as Bookmarks’ plans to launch an independent bookstore.
Ginger Hendricks was named Executive Director of Bookmarks in January 2010. She graduated from Salem College and holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Vermont College. Her fiction and nonfiction have been published in local and national journals. Before coming to Bookmarks, she served as Director of the Center for Women Writers at Salem College, Coordinator of Cultural Events at Salem College, and Assistant to the Dean of Cultural and Special Programs at Elon University.
