Each year, VLA offers our attendees the option of pre-ordering a box lunch on Thursday, immediately following our keynote address and before afternoon programming begins. Pre-purchased tickets will be in your registration packet. Lunch pick up is in the Exhibit Hall after the Keynote Address.

Friday Luncheon with Virginia Author Celeste O. Norfleet $33.00
October 25, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Ms. Norfleet’s latest novel, One Night in Georgia, is set in the summer of 1968 and is a provocative and devastating novel of individual lives caught in the grips of violent history. At the luncheon, she will tell us the story of how she started writing (hint: it involves a library in Virginia) and what led her to One Night in Georgia, as well as her other Young Adult and Romance titles. As a nod to her start in the Romance genre, we’ll look to the audience for participation and each attendee will go home with a copy of one of Ms. Norfleet’s books!
