Longwood University, Farmville201 High St, Farmville, VA 23909 Hotel & City Guide
The main location for the festival will be Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. Longwood University is a perfect fit for the Virginia Children’s Book Festival with its long history. By hosting what we hope will be a two-day event, Longwood will not only provide a valuable service to Virginia’s children, but benefit through increased visibility, sponsorship relations and a planned internship program for students.
When Juanita and Katie first presented us with their vision of the Virginia Children’s Book Festival, not only did my colleagues at the College of Education and I know we had to partner with them right away, we knew we would regret it if we let this opportunity slip away. The VCBF will be such a positive influence on the lives of so many of Virginia’s children and families: it will be a tremendous event and we look forward to a very successful future.
