The Blue Ridge Bookfest is held each Spring on the campus of Blue Ridge Community College. The mission of the Bookfest is to "encourage interest in the literary arts by providing the public with personal access to significant authors and their published works." Reading is important to personal growth and enlightenment.

At the annual event, attendees can participate in free workshops, hear presentations by award winning authors, and visit book exhibits. The Bookfest features approximately 40 authors each year.

BRCC TV is on-hand at the event to capture some of the author presentations and conduct interviews with authors. Check out our schedule for air dates or click on a video below.
