LibraryThing meetup at the National Book Festival

Book Festival posterIt’s actually the 5th Annual BookCrossing/LibraryThing Meet-Up at The National Book Festival, 2010, in Washington, DC but that makes for a long blog post title. If you’re interested in socializing with other LibraryThing and Bookcrossing members while you’re at the National Book Festival, this is your chance. The festival is free, and there will be many many authors to see.

Read more about the meet-up here in the Talk group.

Date: Saturday, September 25, 2010
Time: 2-3 pm (the festival runs from 10 AM – 5 PM)
Place: Bottom right side of the steps leading to the Museum of Natural History (the domed building).
What: We gather informally for an hour to chat and get to know one another. Bookcrossing will be giving away free books. Help yourself to any books that you wish to take home. Just look for the yellow Bookcrossing wagon.
Who: Any member of LibraryThing OR Bookcrossing and their family and friends are invited. Wear something that identifies you as a LibraryThinger or Bookcrosser.

Thanks to Squeakychu for organizing!

    I just found out that our Bookcrosser (crrcookie) with the wagon of books will not be attending this year. She had a conflict of schedule. However, there will be a some other Bookcrossers bringing a few books, but not the amount of books we usually have. Keep an eye out for “wild” BookCrossing books being left in various places on the festival grounds. If found, they’re yours to keep or give away, as you’d like.

    Just so everyone knows…the Festival is actually from 10am to 5:30pm and everything is FREE. Hope to see many of you there.

  2. I wish I could be there on that date but I am preparing for a trip there on 10/23/2010 at the Smithsonian national art African museum for the grass roots to do a cooking and lecture.
