Ugh, I’m so sad- I’m going to miss this years National Book Festival! It’s this weekend, august 30, in DC. And it looks like they have some awesome authors going! Some of my favorite children’s authors, such as Jack Gantos (Joey Pigza books) and Meg Medina (she came to my school last year!), as well as plenty of authors for grown ups, like Doris Kearns Goodwin. Plus, free book marks, pencils, etc! Always lots of fun. I’ll be sad to miss it this year. Visit their websitehttp://www.loc.gov/bookfest/ for the complete schedule of author presentations and signings.
