This past weekend, Charlottesville hosted the Virginia Festival of the Book.
On a panel about southern writing, I got to chat with Ted Geltner about his Harry Crews biography and Jean W. Cash about her essay anthology, Rough South, Rural South. The next day, I talked with Randall Silvis, Robin Yocum, Diane Les Becquets, and John Hart about crime fiction on a "Caught Up in Crime" panel.

Terrence McCauley was on a swell "Techno Thriller" panel and discussed his new book, A Murder of Crows.

A fun time was had by all. Find out more about the festival here and plan to visit Charlottesville next spring for the 2018 Virginia Festival of the Book. Drinks are on David Swinson.
