Missing the National Book Festival…Again

Well, for the umpteenth time I’m going to be out of town for the National Book Festival on the Mall. They’ve got lots of amazing authors lined up this year’s festivities. I’m particularly bummed to be missing Margaret George (I love her historical fiction), Gregory Maguire (of Wicked fame),  brilliant cartoonist Richard Thompson, and the amazing, Nobel Prize-winning Toni Morrison. Oh, and Dave Eggers and Michael Cunningham. And many others.

At least I’ve gotten to hear Garrison Keillor and John McCutcheon before. And Tomie dePaola, but I don’t think that counts as I was about five-years-old!

Here’s a complete list of the authors attending.

Anyway, if you make it down there, be sure to give me a recap!
