Have you been counting down the days until the Virginia Festival of the Book? Your wait just got a little bit easier. The Festival schedule is now online!
As you are browsing the events, you may find that there are so many programs and authors that pique your interest, it’s hard to keep track of them all. The “My Book Bag” feature on vabook.org takes care of that for you.
When you find an event that you like, click the “Pack this in my Book Bag” button. This will save the event to your Book Bag, a customized schedule for you. You can fill the Book Bag with as many “books” as you’d like—but unlike a real book bag, it won’t be too heavy to carry around. You can simply print out your schedule and bring it to the festival.
Once you’ve clicked “Pack this in my Book Bag”, the site will prompt you to log in. If you’ve used the Book Bag before, you can continue to use the same account this year. If you are new to the Book Bag, you can create an account here. It only takes seconds to create your own Book Bag, and all you need is an email address and a password.
