The 18th annual Will Read for Food, a program of readings by local authors to benefit Greensboro charities, will be held 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10, in the auditorium of UNCG’s Weatherspoon Art Museum.

Participants will include Rebecca Black, Stuart Dischell, Holly Goddard Jones, Michael Parker, Craig Nova, David Roderick and Lee Zacharias.

The suggested donation is $5 for students and $10 for the general public. The fundraiser will also involve a raffle of autographed books and literary magazines, with raffle tickets available at the door. All proceeds will go to the Center for New North Carolinians.

Will Read for Food was first organized as Writer’s Harvest in 1994 by UNCG English Department faculty member Hope Hodgkins. Since 1995, the annual benefit has been run by novelist and short story writer Michael Parker and has featured faculty from the MFA Writing Program at UNCG as well as other authors from across the Triad.

There will be free coffee and appetizers courtesy of the UNCG Alumni Association, Tate Street Coffee House and the Weatherspoon Art Museum at the intermission. Books by participating authors will be on sale both before and after the event.
