About VCBF

The Virginia Children’s Book Festival team is a group of dedicated volunteers that works tirelessly to bring opportunity to every child, regardless of circumstance. Founded by Juanita Giles and Katie Snyder in 2011, the VCBF has grown into the largest children’s book festival on the East Coast. In addition to providing our centerpiece festival free of charge, the VCBF donates thousands of books each year, established libraries at juvenile detention centers, operates a mobile READcart, provides programming for children with special needs, produces an annual mural project, and more.
