Videos from the 2012 National Book Festival

That's not a typo in the title. What you're about to watch are videos from the 2012 National Book Festival. (I've been waiting pretty impatiently for the Library of Congress to upload them. Better late than never, eh?) 

Last year's presentations will get you excited for the 2013 National Book Festival (September 21-22, 2013 on the National Mall). If I am lucky enough to attend the festival (I really want to), you'll find me listening to Katherine Applegate, Brian Floca, Jennifer and Matthew Holm, Matthew Kirby, Jon Klassen, Kirby Larson, Grace Lin, Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Patrick Ness, Matt de la Pena, Andrea Pinkney, and Mark Teague. Wow! 

Go pop some popcorn,  grab your favorite beverage, sit back, and get ready to learn from some of the best  authors and illustrators.
