Welcome to ECU
ECU - Tomorrow starts here.



Community Events

Community events, facilitated by local experts, are sure to appeal to a variety of local audiences. These events will be held at various locations throughout Eastern North Carolina to inspire a greater number of citizens to participate through learning, networking, sharing their experiences, and contributing their ideas about literature influenced by that special Eastern North Carolina flavor. By meeting in local communities, these events will enhance the overall participation of the Literary Homecoming and introduce the selected authors, their works, and our theme for this year.  All community events are free and open to the public. Pre-registration for some events may be required due to space limitations.
