A celebration of reading and writing
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.
Besides celebrating the library, the arts in Ashe County, and ‘close-to-home’ authors, ON THE SAME PAGE is intended to expand the reading experience of all citizens of Ashe County, regardless of age and interest. Each year, the Arts Council sponsors a full range of performers in Ashe County Schools that connect to the festival and focus on literature and the importance of reading and writing.
