Sunday, February 8, 2015 5:30 PM to 6:15 PM EST

Three "meet and greets" will be held prior to the Institute Welcome Reception at downtown Asheville's The Venue: publisher sponsors and their scholarship recipients say hello and put a face with a name; mentors and their mentees make that important first connection; and bookseller volunteers pick up their T-shirts and assignments.  Shuttle buses leave from the Grove Park Inn beginning at noon and run every 15 to 20 minutes.

The last shuttle from the Welcome Reception at The Venue will leave at 8:15 pm. Shuttle bus service will continue between the Grove Park Inn and the Renaissance Asheville Hotel, with the last shuttle leaving the Grove Park Inn at 11:30 pm.
