Fall for the Book
Oakton Friends Host Fall for the Book Event October 11
The Friends of Oakton Library are proud to be hosting Fall for the Book Festival author Liza Nash Taylor Wednesday, October 11 at 7 pm to discuss In All Good Faith in a special after-hours event. Liza's second novel takes readers from Boston to Keswick Virginia, to Washington, D.C. during the Great Depression, following the intertwining fates of two women searching for hope during a difficult time. It is a stand-alone sequel to her debut historical novel, Etiquette for Runaways, published in 2020. Liza was a 2018 Hawthornden International Fellow and received an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts the same year. A native Virginian, she lives in Keswick, VA, with her husband and dogs, in an old farmhouse inspiring the setting for her novels.
The 25th Annual Fall for the Book Festival
is being held October 10-14, with a special preview event October 4. Author events take place at George Mason University, and several sponsoring FCPL branches. There will be some virtual events as well as podcasts on the Watershed Lit Station. Registration is not required for the Friends of Oakton sponsored event, though other Festival events may require you to sign up in advance. You can pick up a printed copy of the Fall for the Book event listings on the "free" table in the lobby while supplies last, or find more information and the full schedule online at fallforthebook.org
