Spending the Day at the Williamsburg Book Festival

 The First Annual Williamsburg Book Festival was months in the planning. Many people were involved, including those who paid for the opportunity to programs in a side room throughout the day. Those free-to-the-public talks proved quite popular. At the end of each session, attendees flowed out, and many moved around the Community Building, talking with authors and buying books. The Chesapeake Bay Writers Club had a table where they introduced the anthology, Harboring Secrets. My memoir short story and a poem are part of the book. The William and Mary Barnes and Noble Bookstore handled sales of all the books.

Hilary, you would love Williamsburg--nothing huge like your castles and great estates, but a lot of history you enjoy.
