Love to read? Love to read things other than cases and codes every once in a while?! Check out Charlottesville’s Festival of the Book events on campus and around town starting this Wednesday, March 19. For twenty years the Festival has been bringing great authors from around the world to our doorstep to tell us stories – ones they’ve written and ones about what they’ve written. Most of the events are free, no pre-registration required.
Getting caught up on your Crim Pro casebook reading? Supplement it with the Festival event with authors of historical thriller books. Take a Saturday afternoon stroll to the downtown mall to hear about “Hell on Heels: Bad Girls, Feminism, and Rebellion in Romance Fiction”. If you’re looking for a study break & breath of fresh air, check out the many Festival events just down the hill at the Barnes & Noble at Barracks Road, including a panel on protest movement memoirs and one on writing about climate change.
