Coming up on September 13th and 14th, 2017, E.K.M. will be in northwest North Carolina for the 10th Anniversary of the On The Same Page Literary Festival. This year they have invited ten authors to participate and celebrate their anniversary, taking place in West Jefferson, N.C., about a 90 minute or so drive west (and north) of Winston-Salem. The complete festival kicks off on Tuesday, the 12th and runs into Saturday, the 16th. E.K.M.’s official events are an Author Smorgasbord Luncheon on Wednesday (there’s a nominal charge for this event) and he’ll present a reading on Thursday evening (Free!). That evening he'll share insights on his characters and read from his recently published novel, The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues. There will also be a question and answer period and later a book signing. E.K.M.'s reading starts at 7:30pm at the Ashe County Arts Center.

Readings, writing workshops, discussions, visual art, performance art, film, spoken word, craft, food, and more blend together each year to become the special experience that is On the Same Page Literary Festival. All events take place in various locations in the immediate area. West Jefferson (alt 3200ft) is a historic, small town located in Ashe County, nestled within the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains of northwest North Carolina.
