I just got my plane tickets for my trip to see Diana Gabaldon at her book-signing in Fairfax, VA, on April 12, 2013!
We don't have a lot of details yet, but the following information was provided by Diana's assistant, Susan (aka "Herself's Elf") on Facebook yesterday:

Fairfax, VA (near Washington D.C.)
Additional information will be available soon through the Fairfax County Public Library - Facebook and regular webpages.
The weekend of April 13-14 happens to coincide with the end of the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC. I plan to do some sightseeing in Washington on that Saturday with my brother and my sister-in-law. (I will be staying at my brother's house in Maryland.)
I know that there's a group of fans from My Outlander Purgatory who are making plans to be at this event on April 12. What about the rest of you? If you're planning to be there, post a comment here and let me know!
I'm really looking forward to this. It will be my third time meeting Diana in person, and the first opportunity we've had to see each other since 2010. (The photo above is from my first meeting with Diana, in 2009.)
Hope to see some of you there!
