Spring 2019 LOLA Festival

Our Spring 2019 Love Our Local Authors (LOLA) festival is Saturday, April 27, at 3 p.m.-5 p.m. We planned this event as part of our 2019 Independent Bookstore Day celebration.

The LOLA festivals are limited to self-published and small-press authors who live in the Virginia/Maryland/DC area and have not already had an opportunity to sell their books at our events. 

We are excited to welcome more than 20 authors/illustrators to the store to present and sign their books!
