This weekend, long-time Bookreporter.com reader Nancy Bader attended the Savannah Book Festival, now in its 10th year. Here is her report.... The Savannah Book Festival always runs over President's Day weekend. There's a single, opening speaker Thursday night (James Patterson -- CROSS THE LINE, this year); the keynote Friday night (Colson Whitehead -- THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD) and the closing speaker Sunday afternoon (Christina Baker Kline-- A PIECE OF THE WORLD). Tickets to hear each of those were $20.
