Come for the North Carolina Writers’ Network Conference; stay for the independent bookstores. “There are at least half a dozen bookshops that I can think off the top of my head in Durham, Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Wake Forest,” says conference director Ed Southern. “You can easily blow off the conference and spend the weekend just visiting bookstores. We don’t encourage you to do that. But we wouldn’t blame you if you did.”

The conference, held in Durham from Nov. 19 to the 21 this year, includes panels and readings, keynotes and workshops taught by professional authors, open-mic sessions, and manuscript critiques with agents and editors. It attracts hundreds of people from all over the country.
