I first heard about Virginia’s Festival of the Book from Mr. Bookdwarf’s wonderful parents, who live and work in Charlottesville, Va. I have visited the city several times now and really love it. They have some of the best used book stores I’ve come across. I did not know how huge the festival was until I checked out their website here. Man, what a list of authors! Ron at Beatrice has posted several dispatches from an author attending the FOTB. The entries are spread out over a few days, but worth reading. I’ll see if I can scare up some other such links. Or let me know if you come across any.
