Festival Testimonials

My favorite part of the book festival was meeting the authors and artists and hearing their stories.

My favorite part of the book festival: Everything!


The DVBF exceeded my expectations.


It's a wonderful celebration of writing and reading and adds a lot to the cultural life of our community.     


The Deep Valley Book Festival was the most well-organized (and promoted) book fair that I've participated in -- and probably the most FUN as well! The people were awesome -- from the team of coordinators to the volunteers to the participants themselves.
