I love my city. While I used to get out a lot more than I do these days, I still try to explore when I can. there are three awesome events happening in the next few days that I want to tell you about. Hopefully I will make it to at least one of them!
Bookmarked is a free event to build awareness for Lucy’s Book Club (LBC). Head out to North Hills this Saturday to hear children’s book readings by local celebrity-heroes, live music, and free activities for the whole family. Check out their Readers and Performers page for more information. They will also have a raffle ($5 suggested donation) for fun prizes including an iPad mini!
When: May 4, 2013 from 9am-12noon
Where: The Commons at North Hills
The Handmade Market
One of my favorites, the Handmade Market is at it again selling handmade goods from some of North Carolina’s most talented artisans. You will find everything from jewelry to clothing to artwork and pottery. Not to mention amazing local food! This event is free, but you can shop an hour early (10am) for $5 if you really want to get a jump on the goodies! Early bird shopping is new this year and cash only.
When: Saturday, May 4 from 11 am until 5 pm
Listen To Your Mother Show
This would make a great Mom’s night out just days before Mother’s Day weekend! I am bummed that I will already be out of town, but that just means there is an extra seat for you! Several of my good friends will be reading their work and I am certain it will be an amazing night.
When: Wednesday, May 8th 7:30pm-9:30pm
Where: Kenan Auditorium/William Peace University
