VA Festival of the Book

I'm back from a weekend visit to Charlottesville for the Virginia Festival of the Book. My first time attending but man was it a blast! Not sure what I enjoyed more, reading in my home state for the first time, being in Charlottesville, or seeing my parents--or all of the above. Here are lots of photos.

Special thanks to Kevin McFadden for being such an advocate for poetry and for this festival.

First, my parents! We're having lunch at Five Guys in downtown Charlottesville.




Most of the poetry readings were held at the New Dominion Bookstore.
