I am fascinated with words. I am fascinated by people. A literary Festival in Greensboro would let us celebrate both, at the same time, in one place, together. To me, this is not just amazing, but why writing and the telling of stories and exchanging of ideas exists in the first place. While books have transformed me many Sunday afternoons on my couch alone, I look forward to being around others who read like their next answer sits in the pages of someone’s book, somewhere.
