I'm going to see Diana in April!



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:
Save the date! Special appearance and public signing for New York Times Bestselling author.........Diana Gabaldon!
When: 7:30 pm Friday evening, April 12, 2013
Where: Stacy C. Sherwood Center (near GMU)
Fairfax, VA (near Washington D.C.)

Additional information will be available soon through the Fairfax County Public Library - Facebook and regular webpages.
UPDATE 1/23/2013 6:27 pm:  Registration for the event opens on Feb. 15 at 10 am.  Look here for details.

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!

My friend and I are planning to attend (we're local). Thanks for mentioning this event - I never would have known otherwise. I hope to see you there!

My Mom and I plan to be there too! I live in NC (on a ridge outside of Boone, NC - Jaime's ridge? HMMMM.) but Mom lives close to Fairfax. Would never have known without you! We hope to see you there.
