    Sorry to miss this but I have to be my din's chariot & provide him with transportation to & from his required Senior Year community service.

    Sooo... we should probably start whipping up a plan. I am interested in Matthew Quick at the the Teen Tent at 10:40 as well as Margaret Atwood and Brad Meltzer starting at 10:55 in the Mystery Tent. I see getting there around 10:30 and probably not staying much past 1 or so. Will likely have the family with me. So enough about me -- if you are going and want to carpool feel free to use the message board to arrange. If anyone wants to propose a meeting spot/time, we can coordinate that, too. Last year we met for lunch, but I have to say the lunch options weren't stellar.

      I read online a month or so ago that she cancelled so she could focus on promoting Flight Behavior & writing her next book. :-(

    This is becoming a maybe for me. I hope everyone has a great time... If I go I will be at one of the places mentioned below, but we may end up doing some home improvement on Saturday.

    Also just realized that this event is still two days long on our calendar. I'm going Saturday, but I guess people can go any time they want!

    I will probably be taking the whole family again, but if not I would love to car pool.

    I'm happy to car pool. And as for stalking Ms. Kingsolver, I'm in. I've read everything she has written and loved them all (I guess I'm not a discriminating reader)

    Would love to, especially now that I don't fear you'll be arrested for stalking Barbara Kingsolver!

    Anyone interested in car pooling? Either to a metro stop or into DC?

    July 31, 2013

      Awesome!

      I might be bringing the whole family with me, if not I would definitely be down with carpooling.

    I'd love to attend. Since I'm new to this club, how do you work this as a group?

    I suggest that we discuss books by some of these authors in the coming months.
