Christy English, a successful local author who is working on her fifth novel, will be at Old Books on Front Street at 4pm on Sunday. She’ll talk about her latest book, Love on a Midsummer Night, inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Actors Gray Hawks and Christy Grantham will present a scene from Shakepeare’s play and English will read from her novel.
Couplet: Two Days of Verse kicks off Saturday, February 4th and runs through Sunday the 5th. It's the first poetry festival of its kind in Wilmington, and organizers say they hope to see it become an annual tradition.
