Congressional Cemetery Book Festival–date change!

Oops! Had the date wrong on my events calendar for the Congressional Cemetery Book Festival. Totally my bad. It is SATURDAY, August 11th from 3:30-6:30. Glad I caught that or it would have been a pretty boring Friday afternoon for me. The cemetery is a popular spot for dog-walkers, so they decided to make the event dog themed. Dogs are invited. Much to my kids’ chagrin, we have no dog to bring along. And much to my marketing department’s chagrin, my book didn’t feature adorable dogs (or boy wizards or vampire teens).  But anyhow, hope to see you there!

Full write-up here:

Congressional Cemetery’s “Outside A Dog” Book Festival Saturday August 11 3:30-6:30

Event Date & Time:
Aug 11 2012 – 3:30pm – 6:30pm

Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.
–Groucho Marx
