Last year, the DBF saw the likes of Clyde Edgerton, Tom Perrotta, and Karen Russell (among many others), and this year the festival will feature more than 300 authors, including Erin Morgenstern, Michael Connelly, David Levithan, Lauren Groff, Kevin Henkes, Sheila Turnage, Julie Otsuka, and Gail Tsukiyama. Seriously, y'all, it gives me chills.
If you want to know more about the DBF, check out their events schedule and full author listing. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Now I'm off to finish packing! I shall return on Monday with a full report and an empty wallet. I hope y'all enjoy the holiday weekend as well!
