About

Book City3The Roanoke region has a lot of literary and literacy assets. Roanoke’s seventh All-America City award based on its efforts in the Campaign for Grade Level Reading. Every baby born in the city receives a Roanoke Baby board book. One of the oldest graduate level creative writing programs in the country is going strong here at Hollins. And the list goes on, and you can explore our assets using the menu above.

Does all of that make Roanoke a BOOK CITY?

Well, yes. We think so. And this site and our community is a lab in which we’re rolling up our sleeves to see what we can do with it all. Sound like fun?  Authors: get involved by submitting your writing, subjecting yourself to a profile, or attending an event. Readers: submit a reading list or a book review. Nominate a City Builder to be profiled.
