BOB Awards Winner's Guide

Sensoria Festival

  • Arts & Culture


MacArthur “genius grant” recipient and author George Saunders said “the Sensoria Festival is one of the very best of its kind in the world.” Central Piedmont Community College’s yearly literary/arts festival brings world-class talent to its campuses. Saunders, the Paul Taylor Dance Company, multiple United States poet laureates, and others not only provide public performances and talks during the festival, but also visit the classrooms of the school for intimate, once-in-a-lifetime experiences for students.
