The festival begins at 10 a.m. at the Hampton B. Allen Library and runs until 2 p.m.
"I am truly inspired to be a part of HOLLA! Literary Festival 2013, surrounded by fellow authors and readers. This is a grand opportunity to connect and network on a greater scale,” said DeVondia Roseborough, author of Put It On Paper  and My Last First Kiss. Roseborough is also an AIDS and HIV advocate.
Author Dahlia Rose, who has written 80 books, including her latest: Baby On Board, And Baby Makes Three, Christmas Three and Seal of Honor said bringing literacy to smaller communities in North Carolina is an exciting venture for her.
“I've been part of HOLLA once before and loved it. It brings literacy in smaller North Carolina communities to light. I loved interacting with the readers and community members of Anson County and I'm looking forward to doing so again!”
Authors will be selling and signing copies of their latest works.
There will also be choir performances and praise dancing.
