I attended this wonderful Book Festival in 2005 when I was an English teacher in Northern Virginia.  My co-worker/friend and I listened to Meg Cabot and Sharon Creech give delightful presentations.  Meg Cabot was hysterical.  We were also able to get signatures from Meg Cabot.  (P.S. This was before I read Ready or Not (worst. book. ever.) and when all I knew of her was The Princess Diaries and All-American Girl.)

Meg Cabot signs my book (All-American Girl--one of the funniest books I've read).
Have you been before?  Will you go this year?  I'm soooo excited to hear Suzanne Collins speak!
