Richmond festival beckons booklovers

October 15, 2018 Bill Sizemore 0 Comments

I’ll join more than 40 authors from all over Virginia and beyond who’ll be hawking books this Saturday, Oct. 20, at the first-ever RVA Booklovers’ Festival in picturesque Jefferson Park on Richmond’s historic Church Hill, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

UPDATE: A bit of overnight rain is projected to yield to a beautiful fall day just in time for this free outdoor event, so it’ll go on as scheduled.

The family-friendly festival will include interactive children’s activities, literary-inspired artisans, live music and local food vendors. The leafy park offers panoramic views of the Richmond skyline.

Authors and poets will give book talks and readings on three stages throughout the day. I’ll be on the main stage at 1:30 p.m. reading from my new book, Uncle George and Me: Two Southern Families Confront a Shared Legacy of Slavery.

The rest of the day I’ll be at my booth selling and signing books. In addition to Uncle George and Me, I’ll have copies of my co-written true-crime book, A Far, Far Better Thing: Did a Fatal Attraction Lead to a Wrongful Conviction?

Hope to see you there!
