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:
Mo Willems
David Shannon (who I met there last year!)
Azar Nafisi
Junot Diaz
John Irving

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!

  1. I know – I'm so jealous! I love Mo Willems and David Shannon and John Irving is one of my favourite adult writers (which is why I did not vote for Setting Free the Bears, because it is not my favourite of his). And Judy Blume – forget about it!

    Oh, my God. I must go. I would give more to meet Judy Blume than probably any other living writer. Must find a way to go about this so that I don't wind up in prison, haha.

    i usually chicken out when it comes to meeting famous people i dig. because! i don't know what to SAY to them. you don't want to be cheesy and lame and tell them what they've heard a thousand times before. you want to stand out somehow. but HOW??? hi, btw 🙂
