The 2013 Blue Ridge Bookfest is now history and we are already starting to plan for 2014. Next year, the festival will be held on April 25-26, a few weeks earlier than in the past. A crucial part of our planning will be selecting the panel of authors who will be invited to speak and here is where we need your input. If you have a favorite author who you would like to hear at Bookfest, send us an email and give us her/his name. Similarly, if you have a favorite genre (fiction, history, poetry, etc.) that you would like to see featured at our 2014 event, let us know that too. You can send your responses to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will forward them to the 2014 Program Chair. Many thanks and happy reading.
