One For the Books

With so much inspiring natural beauty, it’s no wonder Fort Bragg is home to so many artists of all mediums. But somewhat less visible is Fort Bragg’s thriving author scene,  from fiction and non-fiction to poetry. There is also a varied book shop scene, including lots of used/recycled options.

“There are possibly more poets per capita here than in any other county…” says Joe Smith, author of a number of poetry collections including Sappho’s Island.
