My speech went great! I’ve done panels, but this was my first time speaking in front of that many people before, and it was a fantastic experience. It was also videotaped, so hopefully they’ll put the link on the Library of Congress page. I got to meet and hang out with NPR's Petra Mayer and authors Sarah Maclean and Beverly Jenkins, which was really fun!
More Pics from the National Book Festival are on my FB page!
Also, USA Today HEA has a fun post on it!
