Art & Music

True Lit recognizes that literary arts transcend boundaries of written and spoken word into other forms of artistic expression.  For this reason, art and music are seen as integral components of the festival.  Learn more about our art and music events and express your love of literature outside the bounds of a book.


Secret Agent 23 Skidoo

GRAMMY-winning hip hop artist, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo combines the dynamism of hip hop with the magical world of childhood. With sophisticated instrumental funk and positive, witty wordplay, Skidoo has a loyal national following. His latest album, Infinity Plus One, took home music’s biggest prize at the 59th GRAMMY Awards for Best Children’s Album of the Year. On stage, Skidoo’s live shows are alive with call-and-response anthems like his classic “Whatchya gotta be? / I gotta be ME.” Secret Agent 23 Skidoo creates unique and heartwarming music that has garnered national awards, eight #1 hits on SiriusXM Global Radio and praise from TIME, NPR and USA Today. Secret Agent 23 Skidoo is part of Fayetteville Public Library’s True Lit Festival.
