Anita Pomerantz | 6734 comments One of my favorite events!! The authors have been announced. Personally hoping to see: Jennifer Eagen, Jeffrey Eugenides, Tayari Jones, Celeste Ng, Meg Wolitzer, and Min Jin Lee.

I've seen a bunch of the other big names already, but still looks awesome!

Jen | 1545 comments I wasn’t all that interested last year but this year is a great line up (for me)!

Jgrace | 3106 comments I am very tempted. I couldn't do it last year. I went east at the end of October for a family wedding. But I've no previous obligations this year. I'm going to look at airfares.

Cora (corareading) | 1456 comments I really want to go to it one year. Since they have it on labor day weekend, family obligations always get in the way.

Karin | 7465 comments Dang--looks good but there are some parent parts of my son's college orientation that starts that weekend, so naturally I need/want to be here for that. It starts August 30 and lasts a week--my part might just be the weekend (I hope).

Tracy (tstan) | 1237 comments Oh my goodness- what a great group of authors and poets! I'm fangirling just reading the list. I will hopefully be at an engagement party- my son's!

Ladyslott | 1880 comments I’d love to go and meet up with you again, but I think this might crossover with our family trip to our place in Montauk. Also I just sold my place in Florida, need to find a new place after my August closing. Will let you know how things go, and if I can make it this year, liking the line-up...

Jason Oliver | 2098 comments I have never attended a book festival of any kind. This sounds fun. I would love to go.

Anita Pomerantz | 6734 comments It would be awesome to see some other PBT folks at the festival. Kelly and I are definitely planning to go (barring any moving emergencies lot - - I'm in the midst of house selling and a move, and it's purely insane).

If people let me know in advance, I'd be delighted to make a lunch reservation somewhere close by so perhaps we can all gather and get to know each other in person!!

Congrats on selling your place!!! We need to trade stories because this house selling is about to throw me over the edge. Time for a PM catch up!

OH! That sounds like the only thing more fun than a book festival, lol. congratulations!!

Anita Pomerantz | 6734 comments Jen and JGrace and Jason, please let me know if you decide to go. Even if you don't want to meet up with Kelly and I for lunch, we should at least connect at one of the sessions or something. It is a little hard because the whole thing is kinda go go go!!

Jason Oliver | 2098 comments It is unlikely that I will be able to go, but if I do I will let you know.
