Virginia Festival of the Book

The Virginia Festival of the Book, a program of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, is March 16-20, 2011. This annual event celebrates all things book and encourages reading and literacy.

Each day offers a full menu of both free and ticketed events. Anita Showers, Manager of Marketing and Media Relations, will discuss her book, Gardens of the Spirit, on March 17 at 6 p.m. William Allard, most famous for his work as a National Geographic photographer, speaks at 8 p.m. the same evening. Both events will be held in the Dickinson Building.

Please take a look at the schedule for more information. This exciting week is just too good to pass up, so take advantage of this opportunity while there's a slight lull in activity. Enjoy!
