Crime scenes and cocktails

Join David Swinson for crime scenes and cocktails at 1455’s first Summer Literary Festival on July 18-20 in downtown Winchester, VA. Swinson and authors Ed Aymar (THE UNREPENTANT), and Christina Kovac (THE CUTAWAY) will take a look at crime fiction at the Winchester Book Gallery on July 19, 2019 from 5pm-6pm.

“Having executed a robust programming calendar in 2019, 1455 (previously Virginia Center for Literary Arts, or VCLA) will continue to establish Winchester as a hotbed of creativity and community. After the success of 1455’s monthly Author Series at Handley Library and a number of workshops at both Long Branch and the Barns of Rose Hill, Founding Director Sean Murphy decided now was the time to put together a multi-day event focused on writers and writing: a festival of ideas and celebration of community.

All programs are open to the public and free to attend. A boxed lunch will be provided (on us!) to those who register in advance of the event. The festival will culminate with a featured reading, cocktail reception and dinner (an opitonal ticketed event).”
