the national book festival has never been this fun.
this year, mercyGirl was a maryland finalist in the library of congress
a book that shaped me summer writing contest.
in addition to dropping by the national book festival this year,
and waiting forever in line at the wells fargo booth to experience their virtual maze challenge interactive game,
we attended the contest awards ceremony
where the contest winners got to read their essays
about a book that made a difference in their lives.
we could tell why the winners won:
those avid readers were also very good writers mashaAllah.
congratulations, mercyGirl. write on!
