The National Book Festival has been held the last 11 years on the last weekend in September (this year, its the 24th and 25th). I am hoping to attend this year. There are several authors attending that I'm really excited to see: Cassandra Clare, Sarah Dessen, Tom Angleberger, Carmen Agra Deedy, Tomie dePaola, Jarret Krosoczka, Lauren Myracle, and Matthew Reinhart just to name a few. I have already purchased a couple books to have signed to be given away (keep watch for more details!)
I hope to see you there!
