It provides an opportunity for authors to share their work and themselves with readers. It gives readers a chance to rub elbows with the authors who take them on journeys through their writing. It offers writers a chance to be inspired and to practice their craft. It offers writers a chance to attend instructive and hands-on workshops. It is a special time in the mountains of North Carolina for lovers of the written word. Each year, the On the Same Page Festival takes on a unique theme and flavor. The theme is planned and intentional and provides a thread that is woven throughout the festival. The flavor is organic, developing naturally from the combination of people and special events that are part of the festival, as well as the spirit of the mountain community in which it is held. Readings, writing workshops, discussions, visual art, performance art, film, spoken word, craft, food, and more blend together each year to become the special experience that is On the Same Page.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band has held the torch of New Orleans music aloft for more than 50 years, all the while carrying it enthusiastically forward as a reminder that the history the septet was founded to preserve is a vibrantly living history. Rolling Stone magazine calls the dynamic group “the past and promise of America music.” “When we play music, the barometer for us as a band is whether the locals are reacting,” says bandleader/composer/bassist Ben Jaffe. “In New Orleans we play music for dances and parades, funerals and church. It’s important to us to make music people connect to, that people dance to, that people really feel, emotionally and physically. That’s the tradition we grew up with, that’s what we know."
