2016 welcomes our headliner, Virginia's own groundbreaking author: Rita Mae Brown
The Williamsburg Book Festival is a free event for readers and for writers.
A book fair will give readers the opportunity to meet and talk with area authors about their books and have books signed.
Workshops and author presentations are planned during the festival. Reader presentations by authors will give a behind-the-scenes look at such elements of books as the author's characters, research in the topic, plans for up-coming books, intriguing points of the book's theme or book club discussion points. Authors and publishing professionals will conduct workshops for aspiring, new or experienced writers on the craft of writing and insider tips on publishing.
