Scenes from the 2007 National Book Festival

It's hard to beat the location of the National Book Festival, held annually on the Mall in Washington, D.C. Above, that, of course, is the Washington Monument. Author Terry Pratchett, was very, very popular.

Two historians -- Michael Beschloss on top and James Swanson on bottom. Swanson wrote the fine Manhunt.

Joyce Carol Oates and Mercer Mayer were also big attractions. Mayer was the illustrator for the 2007 Book Festival poster.


  1. James Swanson gets made props just for that outfit.

  2. Your pictures are fantastic, and the first I have seen of the 2007 National Book Festival. I hope you don't mind, but I included a link to your pictures in my blog Woodstock for Bibliophiles, Would you mind if I include the first picture you have posted as well? I'll make sure to give you credit for it in the blog.
