The main events for the North Carolina Literary Festival will be held in NC State’s new James B. Hunt Jr. Library. As the “face of NC State in the 21st century,” this new space has generated international attention for its stunning modern architecture, its ubiquitous technologies, and its many simulation and large-scale visualization rooms that encourage and enable new forms of storytelling. The Hunt Library will serve as the festival’s thematic centerpiece, inspiring conversations about the future of reading and reading-based technologies.
