Spirited UNC-Charlotte professor keeps Novello Festival alive

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library has brought us the Novello festival for more than a decade now. Due to budget concerns this year, the festival is on hold. Enter UNC-

Charlotte Professor Mark West who organized a Novello-lite to fill the void this year. The library liked West’s idea, and is sponsoring “A Tribute to Novello.”

Local writers will lend their services for free and Novello Press will announce the two books it will publish this year.

“I felt like the community had benefited from Novello for all these years and maybe it was time for the community to show its appreciation to the Library for what the festival has come to mean,” said West in a press release from the library.

October 1 and 2 will feature adult authors and October 9 will feature young adult and children’s authors.

In addition, Novello Festival Press (NFP) will present its two most recent publications:

October 2: Topograph: New Writing from the Carolinas and the Landscape Beyond, an Anthology edited by Charlotte Viewpoint’s Jeff Jackson
October 9: The Children’s Book: Wings and Dreams: The Legend of Angel Falls by Irania Macias Patterson with illustrations by Catherine Courtlandt McElvane.

Pat Siegfried, a former librarian with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and current owner of Black Forest Books and Toys, will head up the youth events. West will coordinate the adult events.
