Book Festival in Virginia

by Maggie Sefton

Tomorrow, Wednesday, I'll be flying back to Northern VA/Washington, DC area.  But this time, instead of renting a car at Dulles airport and driving to see friends and family in Northern VA or going to a conference in Washington, DC (like Malice Domestic, coming up the first week of May), I'll be renting a car and driving southwest to Charlottesville, VA, home of the University of Virginia.

I'll be participating in the Virginia Festival of the Book, held in Charlottesville from Wednesday afternoon March 20 thru Sunday afternoon March 24.  I will be on a Thriller panel on Saturday, March 23 at 2:00pm at the Omni hotel.  Fellow Cozy Chicks--Jennifer Stanley/Ellery Adams, Leann Sweeney, and Lorna Barrett/Lorraine Bartlett will also be participating at the festival and have panels that same Saturday.

So----if any of you Mystery Reader friends live in the Charlottesvilles, VA area and want to see scores of fiction and non-fiction authors, please stop by the Festival and say "hello.". It's free and open to the public.  We'd love to meet you.  :)

I wish I could be there to see some of my favorite authors!!! I knew there was a reason I never should have left the area. Now I live in Iowa and it's way to far to go. Have a wonderful and safe trip.

You are getting closer to me but still too far to come. You need to come to EAST Tennessee! Would love to meet you!

I live in East Tennessee,too. March 23rd is my birthday. What an awesome birthday present that would be,trying to talk Hubby into a birthday trip!

I sure wish I could come to a convention like this, and meet you all! I think your publisher should arrange a convention in Europe sometime soon!

Sue---Thanks. Well let everyone know whenever we get to Chicago. :)

Laura---I'll be coming into the "approximate" vicinity this late July for a big conference in Atlanta.
