The year 1995 was “the bomb.” That’s when the Virginia Festival of the Book all began!

Join pop culture critic and author of 60 Songs that Explain the ‘90s Rob Harvilla to hear some throwback tunes, chillax on the rooftop (or indoors if the weather’s trippin’), win phat prizes, and reminisce about wack ‘90s slang like this. Wearing ‘90s fashion is encouraged but optional, but get tix yesterday! This will sell out.

Sponsored by Catherine and Tucker Lemon.
