Our 2018 Festival

With nearly 50 events in three days, Greensboro Bound brought something for every reader in the city and surrounding area and every event was FREE. In addition to our featured authors, we had panels on poetry, memoir, current events, the short story, and the novel.

There were panels showcasing the work of the Undocupoets, of Muslim writers, Latinx writers, LGBTQ writers, Transgender/Gender Fluid writers, as well as panels on Cooking, Current Events, Music, and more.  North Carolina small presses were showcased.

We had Picture Book authors, Middle Grade authors, Young Adult authors. We had Performance Poetry and Live Music, including a short opera. And we had llamas!
