Flickr 7,000th photo from the National Book Festival

My how time flies; seems like I just joined Flickr. Still the great, user friendly look and feel (thanks to UI guru George Oates!).

Today, went to the National Book Festival, sponsored by the Library of Congress, bit of a rainy day, but still LC claimed 130,000 people (new record) attended.

I remember the first NBF, held on the grounds of the Capitol (as opposed to the Mall), held on September 8, 2001. This was a small event compared to what it would grow to be.

Today was a rainy day and didn't get to see too much. Spent some time with Paula Dean and Carmen Agra Deedy (also Wilson Kimeli).

This 7,000th Flickr photo is of a woman with official ID taking photos at the 2009 event.
