Virginia Festival of the Book Helping Writers Get Published

Posted: Updated: March 23, 2013 05:34 PM EDT

The Virginia Festival of the Book is helping writers get their words published.

On Saturday, hundreds of authors and booksellers filled the atrium of Charlottesville's Omni Hotel for the festival's 19th annual book fair.

Programs held throughout the day focused on how to get a book published.

"I think it's just a great thing to bring readers together with the writer," said Nancy Damon of the Virginia Festival of the Book. "Writers are very lonely and sad sitting alone writing and, you know, so many of them say to me it's so fun to get out and to talk to people that we're writing for."

Events were held at locations throughout the city. The festival continues Sunday.
