National Book Festival in D.C.

This years National Book Festival poster!

This weekend was the National Book Festival in Washington, D.C. on the National Mall. What a beautiful weekend it turned out to be, you couldn't have asked for better weather! I had heard about it from one of my education professors and was strongly encouraged to go AND my mom had also heard about it SO we went and made it an adventure. What an experience! It was packed and it was great to see all the {free!} resources they had to share to promote literacy for all ages. The author talks were interesting to hear, especially since one of the author's has two children at the school I work at! If you were lucky you could get autographed copies of children's picture books!! We were bummed when we found out we were missing Patricia Polacco on Sunday, she is one of my mom's favorite authors.
