If, for some reason, you haven’t made the short trip to Charlottesville for the Virginia Festival of the Book, maybe this is the year. The festival, now in its 25th year, features day upon day of stimulating conversations, presentations, and readings. The folks at the Virginia Center for the Book do a great job with it, and it’s all happening again on March 20-24.
There are a number of authors with ties to the region appearing at the festival. Here are just the few we found at first glance. Click on their name to see when they’re appearing. And let us know if we missed any. (And authors, if you studied here, hailed from here, or once wrote here, we’ll claim you!)
