“When you invest in literacy in your community, you’re giving somebody a tool to elevate them, for them to move forward. It’s a great financial return on your dollar and your own community. I cannot think of a better investment.”

Wiley Cash on the importance of supporting adult literacy programs. Hear his WHQR interview.


On Thursday, October 14 at 5:00 pm, the Cape Fear Literacy Council presents an evening fundraising event featuring books and brews! Guests will receive a complimentary token for a Hi-Wire beer, learn the latest news from the Literacy Council, and have the opportunity to hear from and meet local author Wiley Cash. Guests may also purchase a signed copy of his latest release When Ghosts Come Home. Learn more about Wiley and his award-winning work here.

This event celebrates the Council’s 36th year of service in the Cape Fear area. We are proud to partner with Hi-Wire Brewing, which will donate $1 from every Flagship beer sold at the event to CFLC. All proceeds support our work to provide free and confidential literacy education for adults in our community. Ticket sales begin on Monday, September 13, 2021.
