I’ll spend tomorrow surrounded by friends in Charlottesville at the 15th Annual Virginia Festival of the Book.
The Festival actually starts on March 18th and is five days of mostly free literary events open to the public, designed to honor book culture and promote reading and literacy. I attend Saturday for two reasons. One is the all-day Crime Wave portion of the Festival at the Omni Hotel. It features a series of panels and presentations from crime fiction authors as well as the Crime Wave Luncheon with Brad Meltzer. If you sign up we can have lunch together.
The other reason for my presence is to be one of the authors representing the Virginia Writers Club. We’ll be in the hospitality room hosted by the Blue Ridge Writers Chapter of the Virginia Writers Club. If you visit the Montpelier Room between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Omni you can learn all about one of Virginia's oldest writing clubs - the Virginia Writers Club, founded in 1918. You can meet and mingle with members and enjoy a showcase of our published works. We will be signing my novels there. So if you’re a mystery fan, or just want to meet some local authors, come join us at the Omni Hotel, 235 West Main St, Charlottesville VA.
