Free screening of documentary film “Girl Rising” (April 1 and 2)

This year’s North Carolina Literary Fest will kick off with two free screenings of the documentary film “Girl Rising.”

Directed by the Academy Award-nominated Richard E. Robbins, this film presents the remarkable stories of nine girls around the world.  These girls overcome many obstacles, including poverty, arranged marriages, and child slavery, and they all receive educations to help fulfill their dreams and inspire others with their great courage.

The free screenings will be held on April 1 and 2, beginning at 7 PM, at the D.L. Hill Library on NC State’s campus.  For any questions regarding this and other events at the NC Literary Fest, please contact Jason Jefferies at
