Williamsburg Book Festival February 24

2024 Williamsburg Book Festival

February 24, 2024 from 10 am – 4 pm in the Stryker Center and Williamsburg Community Building

The Williamsburg Book Festival’s mission is to promote and support the art of literary composition in the Williamsburg area and expose writers to the reading public.  The free event includes authors from various genres, speakers, illustrators, and publishers from Virginia and beyond.  We hope you’ll join us for a family-friendly day of celebrating books and book lovers as we fill the Stryker Center and the Williamsburg Community Building with over 40 authors.

The event is free and open to everyone. Attend one of the workshops to learn more about the craft of writing and the field of publishing. Or discover new books to read in our author showcase featuring local and nationally recognized authors.
