No plans this weekend? How about a road trip to Washington D.C? This weekend, September 21 and 22, is the annual National Book Festival. This year features authors in fiction and non-fiction, children’s books, graphic novels, and poets doing reading and book signings. Some authors include Margaret Atwood, Terry McMillian, Khaled Hosseini, and Don DeLillo just to name a few.
Pittsburgh to D.C. is easy. A drive down I-70 will take you about 4 hours or if you have a little more time on your hands, the bus (Megabus and Greyhound) and Amtrak all have direct routes into the city. The event is free; for more info check out http://www.loc.gov/bookfest/information/.
