As a program of Virginia Humanities and the University of Virginia, the Virginia Festival of the Book values disability within the spectrum of human diversity and is committed to providing an environment where individuals with disabilities can be their full selves and thrive. Our goal is to make Festival programming as inclusive as possible. 

Our virtual events are hosted virtually on Zoom and Facebook Live, with captions provided. For most of our events, closed captions and an accompanying live transcript will be made available through Zoom’s built-in automatic speech recognition software (ASR). To request live-captioning accommodations, please write vabook@virginia.edu no later than seven days before a given event. A video recording from most virtual events will be provided soon after completion and an accurate transcript will be available at a later date, at VaBook.org/watch.

Should you require accessibility accommodations please contact Sarah Lawson at sdlawson@virginia.edu or 434-982-2983 to coordinate details. Accessibility accommodations for the 2022 Virginia Festival of the Book must be requested by March 1, 2022
