Meet, talk with, and buy books from independent science fiction authors, children’s book authors, young adult novelists, poets, and other fiction and nonfictions writers from around the state and country at the 2018 Fredericksburg Independent Book Festival. Held at Old Mill Park in Fredericksburg, Virginia, this year’s event won’t disappoint.
There will be author readings, signings, and panel discussions, food trucks, and this year, for the first time ever, Spencer Devon will be operating a beer garden! Beer and books, a great combination. The event is free and family friendly. Guests are encouraged to register. Your tickets qualify you for prizes offered in every raffle held throughout the day, so be sure to register any young readers you have!
When: Saturday, April 28, 2018. 10am until 2pm
Where: The Harris Pavilion in Old Town Manassas
The Prince William County Public Library System, City of Manassas and Manassas City Public Schools joined together to host the first community-wide book festival in October 2014 at the Harris Pavilion. The annual event now takes place in the spring every year and continues to offer many events and giveaways, including LOTS of free books for all ages, prizes, special community guest readers, Manassas Therapy Dogs, the chance to meet published and local authors, student presentations, live music and so much more!
Donate Books to Manassas Reads!
Manassas community: Our goal is to collect 1,000 gently used or new books for ages pre-K through young adult. In an effort to continue to promote reading in the community, the hope is that all who attend can leave with 10 free books. Donations can be dropped off at Central Office (8700 Centreville Road, Ste. 400). Book donations are also being accepted at all MCPS elementary schools, Mayfield and Baldwin Intermediate schools and Metz Middle School. Addresses for the participating schools may be found on the School Profiles page. Thank you.
