Sorry I didn't get this notice up here earlier (life has been hectic), but for those in the DC area or who are willing to make a day-trip, Katherine Applegate will be speaking and signing books at this year's National Book Festival on the National Mall on Saturday, September 21 (her husband came to this event last year)! Here are the deets:

Presentation in the Children Pavillion: 11:20 am - 11:50 am

Book Signing: 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
(sadly the Children Pavillion is on the opposite end on the Mall from the presentation)

More info about the festival here.

Anyone from here planning on coming? I will be there, trying to negotiate line placeholding, lol (effing Festival scheduling Margaret Atwood at the same time!). I was so disappointed it was just Michael Grant there last year, but now I can get the second signature on the same books! ;)

Did I see you there last year in the front of Michael Grant's line?

I'll be there again :)

I REALLY want to go (missed seeing Michael Grant last year) but I'm scheduled for work! Going to see if someone will switch a shift with me. But if not, have fun without me!

I went! And I brought friends! And I made friends with the group in line ahead of us which included 5 or 6 kids (it was kind of hard to keep track) and I offered them my old Animorphs books because I really don't have room for them (aside from the ones I got signed, of course), and they accepted so NEW GENERATION OF ANIMORPHS FANS! And I told KAA that her books were partially responsible for my studying bioethics and she was all, "I take sole credit for that, of course LOL" and I managed to hold in my actual squees until we were well out of line but basically it was the best day ever.

Also, I did all of this while wearing pink and carrying a Disney Princess bag. For the win!
