2003 USA National Book Festival poster © Joey P. Mánlapaz (Artist. Phillipines - USA). Artist site: http://www.artlineplus.com/artists/manlapaz/manlapaz.html A fairly accurate depiction of the National Book Festival except... add huge crowds, hours long lines & sauna-like heat & humidity. Still, it's worth it to meet & greet your favorite authors & illustrators. They pull in the big names here. -pfb ... Washington, DC. USA.
