The Library of Congress is sponsoring the 2008 National Book Festival from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm Saturday, September 27 (tomorrow!), on the National Mall in Washington DC. (No, I won't be there — I will be on a plane heading East, but not quite that far!)
Click here for a list of podcasts by festival speakers, including several fixtures on the children's-lit scene such as Jan Brett, Joseph Bruchac, R. L. Stine, and Ambassador for Young People's Literature Jon Scieszka.
And, here's a link to some great resources for libraries, educators, and parents about hosting your own book festivals and other book-lovers' events this year.
