Bookmarks, Winston-Salem’s highly popular festival of books, will be held Saturday at Historic Bethabara Park, which is north of downtown not far from Wake Forest University. The event is free and open to all. This year’s honorary chairman is D.G. Martin, host of UNC-TV’s Bookwatch program. Authors of fiction, non-fiction and children’s literature will be there through the day talking about their work, talking about writing and signing books. Things get started around 9 a.m. and run through the afternoon. Full details are here.
