April Community Book Club

Dare Arts and Downtown Books are hosting another North Carolina Reads book club discussion at 6:30pm on Wednesday, April 24 at Dare Arts.


The event is free and open to everyone. At the heart of North Carolina Reads is N.C. Humanities’ desire to connect communities through shared reading experiences.  


In April, participants will be discussing The Violin Conspiracy by Brendan Slocumb, which is a riveting fictional story about a young black musician who faces racism, poverty, and social stigmas while pursuing his dream. The book club discussion will be led by Dare Arts Executive Director Jessica Sands and owner of Downtown Books, Jamie Anderson.


Community members who are interested in participating in this event can purchase the book at Downtown Books in Manteo or Duck’s Cottage Coffee & Books in Duck now, so that they can begin reading and are prepared to discuss the book in April. 


As a part of this wonderful program Dare Arts has received a small batch of books from NC Humanities to give out for free. If you want to participate and need a free book, please call 252- 473-5558 or stop by the Dare Arts Gallery and see Jessica Sands.
