Sky Watch Friday: Literary Skies

These photos were taken a couple of years ago (September 2008) at the National Book Festival in Washington DC. It was a hot, rainy day, with almost unbearable humidity and un-breathable air, but thousands of book lovers braved the elements for a chance to scoop up the latest releases and get a look at some of their favorite authors. This year's festival is coming up in a couple of weeks. I'm hoping the weather is a little better this time around.

The 10th annual National Book Festival, organized and sponsored by the Library of Congress, will be held on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2010, on the National Mall in Washington, DC, between 3rd and 7th streets from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are honorary chairs for the event. The festival is free and open to the public. You can read about the festival, find lists of events and the authors who will be attending, and download this year's poster at the festival website here.

  1. These are great sky pictures, but it looks like it's getting ready to pour. I hope all those book-lovers didn't get rained on.
