Lunch at the National Book Festival

Let's meet for lunch during the Book Festival. I called the Book Festival & the Convention Center & it sounds like the UPSTAIRS FOOD DISTRICT makes the most sense as a place for getting a group together to meet. I'll have signs on a few tables that say Local Authors Scene & will attach several CrowdPublish.TV stickers to them. 

I'll get there at 11:00 to make sure we can get a few tables together. I'll stick around until 1:00, so people can come & go as they please. I recommend getting there on the early side to make it easier to get a seat with the group.

Be sure to post any events supportive of local authors at http://www.CrowdPublish.TV/calendar

The National Book Festival runs from 10:00am to 10:00pm

      Sorry you didn't find us. The Upstairs Food District had a huge sign, but there was another food court on the 2nd floor also.

    Lisa, I filled out the profile sheet to sign up for the CrowdPublish.TV forum, but I don't see a place to submit. Am I missing something? Will I lose everything?

    August 25

    • Germaine P.

      Hmmmm... I've done that and my id and password disappear, so no opportunity for submit to appear.

      August 25

    • LisaSchaefer PhD C.

      I'm not sure what you mean by no opportunity for submit to appear? There's a button underneath the Username, Full name, Password textboxes that says "Sign up."

      The Library of Congress has been putting this on for 13 years & it's always been free to attend in the past. I'm sure it is free again this year.

    Went to the Book Festival last year on the Mall. Highlight for me: hearing Khaled Hosseini, the author of that splendid book on Afghanistan, "The Kite Runner". Glad that the festival has moved indoors this year. Outdoors during the "dog days of August" not my cup of tea!

      You saw Hosseini! Nice! I have to look up who is speaking this year. I'm seeing Nicholas Kristof when he visits DC.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
