Look out National Book I come!

I'm already so excited about this weekend and it's only Monday! Saturday is the National Book Festival held on the Mall in Washington, DC. For me, it will be like attending the Oscars, except better...have you seen the line up of children's and young adult authors????? NO? Well, let me give you a tantalizing peek.....

Holly Black
Judy Blume
Kate DiCamillo
Sharon Creech
Nikki Grimes
Shannon Hale
Steven Kellogg
Lois Lowry
Megan McDonald
Kadir Nelson
Jerry Pinkney
Sharon Robinson
Rick Riordan
Jon Scieszka
David Shannon
Tony DiTerlizzi
Mo Willems
Jacqueline Woodson

And, if you happen to like adult fiction, big hitters like John Grisham, John Irving, James Patterson, Jodi Picoult, Nichoas Sparks, and Janette Walls--just to name a few--will be there.

You can go to the author page of the National Book Festival to find out all about these authors and more. The event is free and open to the public.

I hope to see you there!
