West Virginia Book Festival Canceled

We regret to inform you that the 2013 West Virginia Book Festival has been canceled.

The cancellation of the festival is caused by the loss of significant funding to Kanawha County Public Library for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. The library provided the bulk of the staffing and organizational support for the festival.

The festival Steering Committee, comprised of representatives from charter sponsors Charleston Newspapers, Kanawha County Public Library, West Virginia Humanities Council, and the West Virginia Library Commission, wants to thank you for your support and participation in the West Virginia Book Festival. The committee will explore all options to try make the festival happen again in the future. Don’t forget about us. We intend to be back, and when we are, we hope you will be, too.
