About Lit Café

Every year since 1955, WNCHA has presented the annual Thomas Wolfe Memorial Literary Award (TWMLA) to celebrate excellence in literature about Western North Carolina or by an author from our region beginning with the first award winner – Wilma Dykeman’s 1955 historical work, The French Broad.

To continue celebrating our literary heritage, join us each month for these (currently virtual) one-hour presentations by Western NC authors. There will be a live Q&A after each event. All virtual Lit Cafes will be recorded and available after the event to all registered participants.

Free for WNCHA members; Sliding scale $5-15 for the general public.

Check out our event calendar for more specifics and registration.
