National Book Festival Celebrated in Wash, D.C.

Despite the intense heat (over 90 degrees!) many people turned out to join in the Library of Congress‘ 10th Annual National Book Festival on Sept. 25, 2010 held at the Mall in historic Washington, D.C. ( For those of you who haven’t been there, this is a wonderfully large, public space where people are encouraged to enjoy the Smithsonians (19 free world class museums) lining the walkways of  the area between the Washington Monument and the Capitol Building. I highly encourage you to make the trip.)

Anyway, please check out the Library of Congress’ website explaining the programs for children and adults.  Plenty of exciting events were planned: book signings, dozens of author talks and appearances, and children’s and teen activities. The lineup of authors was quite impressive, for instance, famous children’s author, Rosemary Wells ( of the Max and Ruby series) was there along with fiction writers Ken Follett, Diana Gabaldon, and Pulitzer-winning historian David Remnick! That’s a small sample! You could even vote for your favorite author. Enjoy browsing-
