Vote for Your Favorite National Book Festival Author

Share this post:

One of the myriad new ways we’re marking the 10th National Book Festival — “A Decade of Words and Wonder,” as we say — is to give you, the National Bookworms, as it were a chance to make your voice heard.

This year we have posted a poll at asking people to vote for their favorite author out of all 530 (!!!) authors, illustrators and poets who have graced the National Book Festival since it began in 2001.  You can peruse authors alphabetically and select your fave, and there are also links to vote from each individual author’s bio page.  (The previous link lists 2010 authors, while there is also a drop-down box where you can choose authors from previous festivals by pavilion.)

We’ll tell you more about those other “myriad new ways” in the coming weeks.  But for now, head to the ballot boxes!


  1. I love how she draws you into her stories. Her plots are clearly thought through. You don’t feel as though you left hanging. She has a way of making the characters seem alive.
