Got Weekend Plans? You Do Now.

There are two things going on this weekend worth checking out. First, the National Book Festival presented by the Library of Congress and hosted by First Lady Laura Bush. Dozens of authors will be attending the event (held on the National Mall, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm Saturday) including Bob Woodward — gee, think he has anything interesting to talk about?

Or, for something a little more wonky, check out the Day of Ideas, presented by The Atlantic magazine. Several discussions and panels will be taking place, such as “Can We Compete? America in the Global Marketplace” and “The Future of Privacy in America” and featuring speakers such as Carl Cannon, Rudy Maxa and David Ignatius.

So try something cultured for a change. It’ll be great. Besides, it’s not like there’s any good football on this Saturday anyway.
