Congratulations to Holly Black on her Newbery Honor for Doll Bones. A National Book Festival favorite!

Veronica Roth adorably reacts to revealing a huge spoiler in her talk.

Patrick Ness’ awesome feminist rant in response to a reader question.

Margaret Atwood, in her hilarious deadpan voice, not getting dragged into a feud over Twitter with Jonathan Franzen.

I didn’t think I was going to like author Brad Meltzer but he opened with this bit about his experience at the 2012 festival and his talk just got funnier from there.

National Book Festival!

It was awesome, and once they post the videos online I hope I can gif some of my favorite moments for everyone. But until then, I will leave you with my strongest sentiment from the weekend:

Veronica Roth is ridiculously good looking in real life.

And also a super feminist.

She is awesome.

Spotted in DC. National Book Festival Superhero call.
