I just found out that Judy Blume and Lois Lowry are going to be at the National Book Festival in Washington, DC on 9/26/09. Be still, my beating heart!!!!!
Also looking forward to:
David Shannon (who I met there last year!)
And probably sooo many others that I didn’t notice as I skimmed the list.
All I care about is getting to meet the fabulous Ms. Blume! I have one month to think of what I should say to her, I’ll probably get less than a minute. I just know I’m going to get all fumbling and shy and awkward. Damn me and my anxieties!
