Descrição: What began as a two-day literary event in 1999, organized by George Mason University and the City of Fairfax, has expanded into a week-long, multiple-venue, regional festival that brings together people of all ages and interests, thanks to growing community interest and generous supporting partners.

Each year, the festival:

Advances children’s education by hosting specially tailored writing workshops or readings for students at the elementary, middle and high school levels and by publishing an annual anthology of student writing in partnership with the Northern Virginia Writing Project and Dominion.
Makes literature fun by showcasing literary events in an active, engaging atmosphere that includes skits, dance, storytelling and more, and by introducing young people to living authors whose work they’re reading in the classroom.
Connects readers and authors at all levels, offering book lovers the chance to meet and greet their favorite writers and hear behind-the-scenes stories of writing and publishing.
Builds community by connecting with senior centers, book clubs, special interest community groups, libraries, bookstores and many others.
Encourages cultural diversity by combining common points of cultural reference with forums for discussion of our shared stories.
Gives sponsors a chance to support regional programs, and attracts the broadest possible cross-section of families and individuals throughout the area.
Fall for the Book, an IRS-recognized non-profit corporation, is governed by a board of directors that meets throughout the year.

Events take place at George Mason University’s Fairfax Campus, the festival’s base, and at other locations throughout Northern Virginia, DC, and Maryland.

Just a note - I think the events link there is still for last year's schedule, but it should be the same link once they've finished updating.

I love Fall for the Book! When I was an English student at Mason, almost every class required attendance to at least one event (often more), and some classes were cancelled so we could attend! I loved it. In past years, I've heard readings/discussions from Doris Kearns Goodwin, Khaled Hosseini, Washington Post cartoonists, literary publishers and agents, and more. I can't wait until they finish announcing the list of participants. I may need to take time off work for this one. ;)

Oh, and it's all free!
