The 21st West Virginia Book Festival will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center.

A handful of bestselling national authors will give presentations on their work as well as local and regional authors.

In addition to meet-the-author events, the festival will feature writing workshops, family activities, a literary marketplace and the annual used book sale.

All events are free and open to the public.
