author preview

The National Book Festival site has a tentative list of authors for this year's event on September 24th and 25th. I see the names of several authors I have read, but none of my favorites are listed yet. Maybe that's a good thing in case I'm in the hospital and can't make it.

Which authors stand out to you?

I love Katherine Paterson - her book "Bridge to Terabithia" is my all-time favourite book. I still re-read it periodically as an adult, and I cry every single time. I personally would call in sick to work to see her.

Dave Eggars would also be on my to-see list. I really enjoyed his book "What is the What?", even if I never quite understood the title.
