Verse & Vino

Thursday, November 7, 2019 - 6:00pm

Stay tuned and save the date! The author lineup will be announced in late summer for one of Charlotte’s most anticipated literary events!

Verse & Vino, now in its sixth year, is a Charlotte literary tradition.  This evening of food, wine, and conversation with five New York Times bestselling authors celebrates the joy of reading, writing and libraries, and brings together a community of readers in support of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation. Last year’s event attracted over 1,200 attendees to the Charlotte Convention Center and netted nearly $300,000 for the Library.

Verse & Vino is made possible with the generous support of presenting sponsor PNC and additional corporate, foundation and individual sponsors.
