Succeeded in attending the RBG presentation! Two hours of waiting in line got us within 50 people of the cut-off. If we had wanted something fancy like a seat, we should have gotten there an hour earlier.

Those that can‘t go & even those going: Check out CSPSN2 Book TV interviews of the National Book Festival this weekend. There‘s tons of stuff to record!
If you don‘t have CSPAN2 channel, you can watch shows online at CSPAN2 Book TV
Last year this helped me figure out who I should see in person or who should I watch when I went back home! #NationalBookFestival

Scochrane26 I‘m sad because Barbara kingsolver will be there & I won‘t. 2mo
Graciouswarriorprincess Thanks for sharing. Moving weekend so I will have to watch later. 2mo
tpixie @Scochrane26 I know!! I wanted to go again this year - last year was my first time and I loved it. My daughter is pregnant with twins and due two months ( 32 was) and I was just worried that she would deliver right when I left town. But now it‘s like, “ I wonder how much a plane trip to Washington DC costs and is there anyway I could find a hotel last minute?! “. Lol. So I‘ll just have to watch C-SPAN2 and Book TV!! 2mo

tpixie @Graciouswarriorprincess good luck moving!! You‘re halfway there! 2mo
Scochrane26 @tpixie I‘m fortunate to have a couple of friends I could stay w/ if I could go. I didn‘t know about it until a few days ago when BK put it on her fb. I just want to meet her, but I‘m sure I would love the whole festival. 2mo
Chrissyreadit I will check it out! I‘m giving my niece my ticket to Dear Evan Hanson and going to the book fair! 2mo
tpixie @Scochrane26 yes! Save up for next year!! Labor Day Weekend! 2mo
tpixie @Chrissyreadit awesomeness!!! Have a blast and I hope to see you next year! 2mo
DivineDiana Why am I just seeing this? 🙁 2mo
tpixie @DivineDiana I know! It‘s so hard to keep up with Everything!!! The talks likely are still streaming online at CSPAN2 Book TV. Or even the Library of Congress website. Just remember it‘s every Labor Day weekend and although it‘s a blast to go, you can tape it from home! 2mo
DivineDiana Thank you! Just signed up for an account, so I can save the talks. RBG is still there! 2mo
tpixie @DivineDiana awesome!!!! I love RBG‘s scarf she is wearing ! 😂 2mo
DivineDiana I‘ll have to take a look! 🙂 2mo
tpixie @DivineDiana 💚 🧣 💚 2mo

PSA for all potential #NationalBookFestival attendees: admittance is free. Programs are free. Anyone trying to sell you tickets or programs is just scamming you.

In 2012, my (Jen‘s) student book club president proposed a field trip to the #nationalbookfestival on the DC mall to see John Green speak. That was my first time (as far as I remember) seeing an author speak in person. I took a small, enthusiastic group that year. Those students loved books and authors and were willing to wait in line as long as it took (three hours!!) to shake their favorites‘ hands. (continued in comments)

UnabridgedPod Often, students were interested in autographs (they were star struck when Veronica Roth signed copies of Divergent!), but I lean toward hearing them speak. Pictured here, clockwise from left, Diana Gabaldon, Tara Westover, Amor Towles, Jesmyn Ward, Roxane Gay, Leigh Bardugo, Nicola Yoon & Sandhya Menon, Bryan Cranston, Stephen King. Tune in this Wed. for our reflection on Unabridged experience at the VA Festival of the Book! 7mo

Finally recovered from last weekend‘s National Book Festival. My daughter and I waited two and a half hours in the signing line for Justice Sotomayor‘s autograph. She was gracious and amazing.

Jeffrey Deaver had a subtle rye humor during his talk. He writes the Lincoln Rhyme mystery novels and has been given approval to continue the 007 Books! #NatBookFest #NatBookFest2018
