BOOKMARKS invites you to join us for a 
Book Club Movable Feast

The Movable Feast will be held at SECCA, the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, in Winston-Salem, NC. SECCA docents will give private, personalized tours of the museum at 2:00 and 2:30 for attendees and authors. 

The program will begin at 3:00 inside the auditorium. Attendees will be dismissed to pre-assigned tables in the auditorium lobby where they will be joined by an author. Over the course of the Movable Feast, more than a dozen published authors from all over the country will sit with each table of book club members to talk with them about his or her recently published book. 

Opportunity for further discussion will follow the Movable Feast inside the auditorium, where book sales and book signings will be held.
