2009 National Book Festival - Washington, DC
Sunday, June 14, 2009 10:25 AM
Now that the Literary Tea is finished, I'm moving on to my next project - a trip to the 2009 National Book Festival. It will take place in Washington, DC on Saturday, September 26, 2009 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. See the note I put on the book club calendar giving a little more information. There isn't much available yet but I will continue to update it as I find out more. You can also read about past year's Festivals at www.loc.gov/bookfest.
I'd love to have enough people to put a one-day bus trip together. Before I start getting info about costs for a bus trip, I'd like to know how many of you might be interested. Ask your friends too - we'll probably need at least 40 people to go. Even friends who aren't readers may want to go. The Book Festival takes place on the Mall so people who do not want to go the tents to meet authors and browse through books can go to the Smithsonian or any of the monuments.
So please respond to this email if you are interested in this. Just indicating interest does not mean you are obligated to go.
