  • | 10:00am - | Shows, Festivals, and Fairs, The Literary Festival of Charlotte, Charlotte, NC, authors, book signings
    - A single moment - that's all it takes to influence a young person's life. As a stakeholder in Charlotte's communities, you know this. The Literary Festival of Charlotte (formerly called the Charlotte Book Fair) organically formed in 2011 because a small group had a passion and goal to ignite young people's love for reading. Over the past year, the team's love of reading has evolved into a love of literacy that explores the natural integration with culture, art, music, entertainment and science. Thus, the team has evolved the focus from a book fair to a literary festival.

    Our primary method has been to host a day long event each October offering storytelling, rhythmic song, dance, drumming and enlightening author readings. Giving the youth access to literacy experiences fosters imaginations, innovation, and positively affects their communities and families.

    There will be local authors such as Jordon Greene and Caleb Wygal will be on hand signing copies of their books, as well as other activities, performances and workshops for all ages.

  • - October 1, 1932 in the fifth inning of game three of the 1932 World Series, with a count of two balls and two strikes, Babe Ruth pointed to the center field bleachers in Chicago's Wrigley Field and followed up by hitting a soaring home run high above the very spot to which he had just gestured. Did he really call his shot? Some Disagree, some eyewitnesses and Cubs pitcher Charlie Root believe he did not. Even Babe Ruth's Daughter said that he denied it, but Babe himself also claimed he did it.
