This must be a record. I never remember the author list for the National Book Festival being published before summer, but here it is! Just by name alone, I recognize more authors than I did last year. Once the bios are up, I'm sure a few more will jump out at me.
Who am I most excited to see? Hands down, Veronica Roth. I recently got into her YA Divergent trilogy. What a great opportunity for Roth to plug book three's release on October 22nd--not that she needs to! (If you haven't heard of this series, it's similar to The Hunger Games, but different enough to keep it interesting. Most importantly, for me right now at least, these books are pure entertainment and quick reads.)
Which authors on this year's line-up stand out to you?
