I'm surprised at myself for not blogging about the wonderful time I had at the National Book Festival. Nothing could really top meeting Jacqueline Woodson at the first NBF I went to, but talking to Toni Morrison would have done it. However, the line to get to see her was so long it might still be there now.
I did get to meet a lot of authors: Rita Dove, Sherman Alexie, Yusef Komunyakaa, Rita Williams-Garcia (in the picture) and several others.
Already looking forward to next year.
