I’m very happy that this weekend not only does a local Charleston tradition return, but that I’m going to be a part of it. After a couple of years’ absence, the West Virginia Book Festival is back!
This year’s festival runs Friday and Saturday, October 23 & 24. It includes workshops on Friday, a huge used book sale from the Kanawha County Public Library on Saturday, and a lineup of presentations from some really great authors you might have even heard of:
- Neil Gaiman
- Jodi Picoult
- Jeff Shaara
- Jacqueline Woodson
- Homer Hickam
Gaiman’s on Friday evening, everybody else is on Saturday. You can see the full schedule here.
In addition to all that, there will be a marketplace where numerous authors and publishers will be talking about books and selling them. That’s where I come in – I’ll be in Booth 208 (over near the corner where the Books-a-Million area). I’ll have copies of both Moore Hollow and The Last Ereph and Other Stories for sale – including a super Book Festival Bundle deal where you can get both for a low low price.
Admission is free, so come check it out!
