Happy Book Festival To You!

The air is getting crisper, the leaves are starting to turn, Starbucks is selling their pumpkin latte again and the students are *starting* to settle into somewhat of a routine. It's mid-September which means only one thing...

The National Book Festival is almost here!

I don't even know where to begin with my excitement.  Let's see...

John Green, the author of some of the best teen books around (why, oh why wasn't he writing when I was going through my own painful teenage angst) will be speaking at 10. His books are quick reads- you still have time to read Will Grayson, Will Grayson, or The Fault in Our Stars before Saturday!

Anna Dewdney, the author the Llama Llama series (if you haven't read these books aloud you absolutely need to) will be speaking at 4:25.

Lois Lowery, nothing further needed, is speaking at 12:45.

Peter Reynolds, author of Dot and Ish (who I got to meet last summer at ISTE) is going on the story telling stage on Sunday at 3:55

And then...

my favorite author of all authors...

Patricia Palocco on Sunday at 12:55. Her book Thank You, Mr. Falker pretty much sums up why I teach.

Now, just a slight problem with the fact that I have to work around Baby Lipstick's nap schedule.
