A literary smorgasbord, the seventh annual Blue Ridge Bookfest will host a variety of sessions exploring the art and business of the written word.
Blue Ridge Bookfest, now in its sixth year, takes place at Blue Ridge Community College over the weekend of April 25 and 26. More than 35 authors from around the country will participate; Bill Ramsey, who became an author since helping to start the festival, will be among them.
The literary festival, now in its fourth year, features author Elizabeth Kostova (pictured here) and continues tomorrow from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Plus, it’s free.
The best things in life are free (or cheap), and we’ve got local theater, a letterpress print collective, nature walks and yoga to prove it. As always, Xpress highlights the best in low-cost happenings to keep you entertained on a budget.
Celebrate a (late) Victorian Christmas Charles Dickens style: dinner, entertainment and readings from A Christmas Carol, on Jan. 7.
