Audience Feedback from the 2021 Festival

Thank you for making this happen virtually. Since I can’t drive and have disabilities, I never would have been able to attend the Virginia Festival of the Book otherwise.

Please consider doing this in post-pandemic years too.

Your festival is one of the best & I’m so happy to have discovered it.

Thank you for making this virtual and keeping it free—what a great festival!
