The 21st Annual Festival of the BookLeave a Comment
The Lodge at Old Trail is excited to announce that we will be a site for one of the programs for The Virginia Festival of the Book. The Festival brings readers and writers together for a five-day celebration of books, reading, literacy, and literary culture. The 21st Annual Festival will be held March 18-22, 2015.
The Festival is the largest community-based book event in the Mid-Atlantic region and has attracted audiences of more than 20,000 for each of the past eleven years. They have a captivating list of authors, ranging from international bestsellers to topical specialists to debut authors.
Programs range from traditional author readings and book signings to a StoryFest day of children’s authors and storybook characters; from a panel on how to publish a novel, to a discussion on running a book club to a workshop on bookbinding. All programs are open to the public; with the exception of a few ticketed events, programs are free of charge.
The Festival programs are on a wide range of topics set among a variety of venues throughout the City of Charlottesville, County of Albemarle, and the University of Virginia.
The Book Festival has become an integral part of the Charlottesville-Albemarle County community and is now a part of The Lodge community as well.
Please come see three of this year’s participating authors at The Lodge on March 19th, 2015 at 5:30PM at they discuss their works of fiction.
