The NSMA and partner, Bookmarks will sponsor the Sports Book Festival on Sunday, June 26, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m., at Bookmarks, 634 W. Fourth St - #110, in Winston-Salem. This year's Festival features seven sports book authors, including Seth Wickersham, the winner of NSMA's 2021 Sports Book of the Year, It's Better to be Feared.
