The Virginia Festival of the Book begins in three weeks (it runs March 22-26). I just browsed through the program listing for the first day and already I have to take a break before I can a) decide which offerings I'll attend that day or b) look at the schedule for the subsequent days. Just a few of the folks I'd like to see: Barabara Kingsolver, Jane Hirshfield, John Hope Franklin, Livingston Taylor, Amy Goodman, Hendrik Hertzberg, Ron Rash, Edward Schwarzschild (reading from the book I reviewed for Shenandoah), and many, many others. If you're planning to come to the Festival, be sure and let me know!
