Fvie-book author coming to Saturday Salon
Eastern North Carolina author L. Diane Wolfe comes to Literary Bookpost for the Saturday Salon on Saturday, March 28, 1:30-3:30 p.m. with her first non-fiction book.
Wolfe has previously held book signings at the Bookpost with her four novels, and has become quite a regular on the author circuit around the state and the south.
“Overcoming Obstacles with Spunk: The Keys to Leadership and Goal-Setting” is a book for everyone living through our current economic climate. Through Wolfe’s book, one can learn the steps required to overcome obstacles and become an effective and dynamic leader, whether in the business world or in his or her own life.
The book covers topics including developing a positive attitude, learning people skills, raising self-esteem, overcoming fears and setting goals. The book goes far beyond some of the recent popular books of the genre which lead the reader to think he or she can just think positively and all good things will happen, and explains the dynamics of working for what one wishes to achieve.
L. Diane Wolfe was originally from Oregon and began writing at the age of 13. Relocated to North Carolina where she lives with her husband, Wolfe is also a professional photographer who enjoys sports, traveling and roller coasters.
While at the Bookpost, Wolfe will be available for one-on-one discussion and book signing for both “Overcoming Obstacles with Spunk” as well as her fiction works in the Circle of Friends series.
Literary Bookpost is at 119 S. Main St. in downtown Salisbury. For additional information about this event and future upcoming events, call 704-630-9788 or visit www.literarybookpost.com.

Sharyn McCrumb at Wingate
Friends of the Ethel K. Smith Library at Wingate University will host award-winning southern writer Sharyn McCrumb at their 8th Annual Spring Author’s Talk and Luncheon on Thursday at 11:30 a.m.
McCrumb is best known for her ballad novels, including “She Walks These Hills” and “The Songcatcher,” which weave together the legends, natural wonders and contemporary issues of Appalachia. “My books are like Appalachian quilts,” says McCrumb. “I take brightly colored scraps of legends, ballads, fragments of rural life and local tragedy, and I piece them together into a complex whole that tells not only a story, but also a deeper truth about the culture of the mountain South.”
Cost to attend the luncheon and talk is $30 for the general public. Contact Luanne Barbee at 704-233-8093 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to make a reservation.
