Metro Magazine, based in North Carolina, has recently been beefing up its online coverage, with extended film commentary by Godfrey Cheshire, music reviews by Philip Van Vleck, and — courtesy of the blog you’re reading now — more expansive coverage of the state’s literary scene.
Today, in conjunction with Metro (where I serve as contributing editor), I’m introducing an online literary calendar of upcoming events in the Triangle region and throughout Eastern North Carolina. A link to these listings will be a permanent feature of the column to your right, and the MetroBooks Calendar currently features events through the end of March for selected bookstores. Additionally, individual links have been provided within the calendar where an author has been interviewed, reviewed or discussed elsewhere on this site.
North Carolina bookstores and other literary venues interested in being included on the calendar should contact me at MetroBooksNC@gmail.com.
Weekly previews of particularly noteworthy events will continue to be presented on this site, usually on Thursday of each week.
Check back often for information and updates!
