Fredericksburg Independent Book Festival to Celebrate Indie Press

If you plan to be in Northern Virginia in September then you should check out the second annual Fredericksburg Independent Book Festival:

In 2016, Indie Authors, Amazon Imprints, and Small to Medium Publishers accounted for 45% of ebook gross sales. More and more people are publishing their own books, and more and more will need a place to market their work.

That’s where the Fredericksburg Independent Book Festival comes in.

Our mission is to provide a venue for local authors, graphic novelists, publishers, book artists to market their work, and to foster an interest in reading, writing, and literature.

Entering into its second year, the Festival is set to grow, with space for over one hundred authors, publishers, artists, book arts businesses, food trucks, and more.

When it comes to book festivals, I thought my local options included going up to DC or driving down to Richmond, if not further afield.

But it turns out I’ve missed a bunch of book festivals, including the Nova Teen Book FestivaFall for the Book, and this one in Fredericksburg.

I missed last year’s festival, but I will be there this year.
