National Book Festival

The Library of Congress has graciously invited me to participate in the National Book Festival, to be held this September 24th and 25th on the National Mall. I'll be joining hundreds of authors like Dave Eggers, Tomie dePaola, Rita Dove, Sherman Alexie, Jonathan Yardley and David McCullough at the dust-choked midway of gaudy tents and stands lining the Mall. There'll be diversions and games of skill galore, like Whack-A-Motif, Dunk an Unreliable Narrator, Guess-Your-Weltanschauung and Skee Ball plus greasy food on a stick, so come on down for two whole days of literary fun!

Seriously, I'm tickled!

Will walk by Sunday morning on the close of a 50 mile MS fund raising walk. Do you know times you will be signing?

They haven't scheduled things yet, but I'll definitely let you know. And best if luck with that! I'm hoping to do a 5 mile PD walk in October.

oh I've gotta love national book festivals, you can always buy very cool and good books, but lately I have been buying books and meds on online pharmacy sites which are very affordable
