To kick off this year’s festival, join us for a night of home-grown literature, music, and beer. The event will feature Beth Macy, author of Factory Man, as well as music by Wayne Henderson and Factory Girl beer, custom-brewed by Parkway Brewery in honor of Macy’s book. Jon Lohman, director of the Virginia Folklife Program, will host the festivities.
This is the perfect locavore event, honoring a Virginian author for her book about Virginia (also printed in Virginia), publicized with a Virginia custom brew, and celebrated with internationally-renowned musician, guitar-maker, and National Heritage Fellow, Wayne Henderson.
The “Virginia-Made” program will be held at C’Ville Coffee, located at 1301 Harris Street in Charlottesville.
