Audience Feedback from Past Festivals:

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.

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

First event I’ve attended, but now want to attend more!
