I had a fantastic time at the National Book Festival on Saturday, September 27, 2009. I volunteered this year and was assigned to the Fiction and Fantasy Tent — the perfect place for me! I got to meet John Grisham, Jodi Picoult, and Jeanette Walls.
Keep an eye out on Book TV (C-Span) for any replays of the event. Each of the authors who spoke during the morning was spectacular. But you also might be able to spot me, as I was assigned to monitor questions from the audience. So, I stood next to the microphone and assited with the transition from one question to the next. It was a great morning all around!
I even got the chance to sneak away to the Poetry and Prose tent to visit my mentor and friend Julia Glass. Check out this photo of us. This one is going on my website, for sure!
I can’t wait until next year!
