I was most gratified to learn a few months ago that the Library of Congress Book Festival would be happening again this year (September 26th!). It was instituted by Laura Bush, so I was hoping the change in administration wouldn’t put an end to something as worthy as celebrating the written word. But indeed, the Book Festival will be happening in fine style- the list of authors was released yesterday, and bestill my inner child’s beating heart- Judy Blume will be appearing this year. I wonder if my parents still have my old copy of Tales of a Fourth-Grade Nothing?
More authors will be announced as they are confirmed at the date draws closer, so be sure to check the list periodically.
