National Book Festival

I went last year, but I went too late in the day, and it was dusty and gross. I have higher hopes for this year — I'm going to force myself out of bed, dragging along unwitting bibliophiles — because look at this lineup. The National Book Festival is on September 27, on the mall.

The highlights:

Jan Brett
Marc Brown
Katherine Paterson
(who is one of the loveliest people I've ever met)
Jon Scieszka
(I LOVE The Stinky Cheeseman)
Salman Rushdie
Walter Isaacson
Gordon S. Wood
The Frommers
