Thank you to everyone who made this year’s festival so incredible – the authors, the sponsors, the venue owners, the Town of Burnsville, and especially our corps of volunteers!  Save the dates – September 6-8, 2018!

“The Carolina Mountains Literary Festival is the best literary festival you will find anywhere…Other festivals may try to copy it, but it requires more than a schedule of popular authors and a solid plan of action; it requires the love of a community with open arms.  And holding the festival in the magnificent mountains of Western North Carolina in September helps a little too.”  — Kevin Watson, Press53
