Dates for this year’s Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville are March 22-26, 2006. The lineup is still preliminary, but included among the fiction writers are Jennifer Haigh, Michael Parker and Ron Rash. The non-fiction group looks especially strong this year, including a couple of my favorites: Hendrik Hertzberg and Victor Navasky. A highlight, and one of the few events that costs money to attend, is a program with both Barbara Kingsolver and John McCutcheon, a favorite folksinger in these parts. I may have to get a ticket for that, if it isn’t already too late.
