The North Carolina Poetry Society sponsors a monthly reading series at McIntyre’s Fine Books, a lovely independent bookstore located in Fearrington Village, which is in Chatham County, halfway between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro off of 15-501, featuring two to three NCPS members with books. They are always lively, entertaining, and for the past several years, poetry lovers have made the series a great success by continuing to come back each month.
Readings always begin at 2 pm on the fourth Sunday of each month.
