Bookmarks is the Triad’s literary resource for connecting readers with authors. The Winston-Salem based nonprofit produces the Carolinas’ largest annual Festival of Books and Authors, an Authors in Schools program, and a series of Author Talks presenting bestselling and award-winning writers. In 2015, Bookmarks created a Summer Reading Program to encourage K-12 students across North Carolina to respond to books through written, visual, or video responses.
The Festival of Books and Authors brings 40+ authors to Winston-Salem annually, attracting over 12,500 attendees. This year, Bookmarks will reach 19,000 people through special programming and school visits. Each year, Bookmarks brings world-renowned authors to our community, contributing to the unique events that make Winston-Salem the City of Arts and Innovation.
