2014 Virginia Festival of the Book

Nancy Damon.

Program Director Nancy Damon (at right) takes a rare break while reviewing the hundreds of applications and books that have arrived for consideration. By January [the festival] will have a mostly complete schedule that will be on the vabook.org website with frequent updates. We might have some sneak peeks in late December.

I’m going.

Next year is the 20th anniversary of the Virginia Festival of the Book. My author application was approved and I was told the festival hopes to arrange a sports book panel that includes yours truly.

Last year was my first visit to the festival, which is located in Charlottesville. The highlight was an author event at a downtown theater that featured John Grisham, Frank Deford and Jane Levy.
