The 2010 National Book Festival, which takes place on September 25 and is sponsored by the Library of Congress, is currently running a “vote for your favorite Book Festival author” feature.
Authors appearing at the festival include biggies such as Ken Follett, Scott Turow, Suzanne Collins and Time cover boy Jonathan Franzen. Tough competition, huh?
Well, the public has spoken (or, is speaking, as the survey is still open), and the most popular author is. . .
Diana Gabaldon, author of the Outlander Series!
There’s not even a real contest here:
Who is your favorite author on the list? Does anyone have plans to attend the National Book Festival?
Also in BookPage: Read an interview with Gabaldon about An Echo in the Bone.
