Locals Planning for Book Festival

October 31, 2014 in News | MARTIN WREN, P.C. | LEAVE A COMMENT

As Fall progresses, business leaders in the Charlottesville area are busy at work planning events for Virginia’s Festival of the Book in March of 2015. Reports in the Daily Progress reveal that speakers are being selected for the event, which will go on at various Charlottesville locations, including the Omni Charlottesville Hotel and the local Culbreth Theater.

According to this newly released information, featured speakers will include local journalist Beth Macy, author of “Factory Man: How One Furniture Maker Battled Offshoring, Stayed Local — and Helped Save an American Town,” and Frances Mayes, author of “Under the Tuscan Sun” and other best-selling novels.

The lineup is also set to feature Kate DiCamillo, National Ambassador of Young People’s Literature award winner. DiCamillo also won two Newberry awards for her novels “A Tale of Despereaux” and “Flora and Ulysses.” Another crowd draw will be Karin Slaughter, author of “Cop Town,” who will speak at a Crime Wave Brunch on March 21 at the Omni.

Book Festivals in Central VA

Books are big business in Virginia. With annual book sales and festivals, and a number of different bookstores and manufacturers in the region, print media is a significant part of industry in the Central Virginia area. But in many cases, a lot work that patrons and others do not always get to see goes into these businesses.

For every special event planned, there are people evaluating those plans and figuring out how to serve a community conveniently and safely. There are discussions about things like fire safety, parking, building conditions and much more that revolve around the central idea of public safety and feasibility for business projects. Collaborating partners manage risk according to their responsibilities. Individual business leaders look for appropriate insurance and different kinds of protections for those who will visit events meant to generate better business results in the local community. The same ideas are at work in the Charlottesville downtown mall, the local farmers markets, the busy downtown shops and everywhere that business happens.

Business leaders often need assistance with planning, not just for daily events, but with the long-term business operations that generate their profits. Businesses in Virginia rely on professional Virginia business litigation attorneys who advise them of all kinds of issues, from public event safety to employment law, trademark law and many other aspects of business where federal, state and local laws make decisions complex.
