09/25/2016 (Sunday evening): Too many events! Too many pictures! Too little time to go through them... (Saturday) I couldn't get any special access for the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture so I did not cover that event. Instead, I concentrated on the always wonderful Library of Congress National Book Festival. I covered parts of 41 presentations and walked almost 12 miles. (Sunday) Also in the queue are Jim Korinke as "Cronkite" at the Newseum as part of the Walter Cronkite Memorial at Missouri Western State University and the AFI/Silver screening of the excellent "A Man Called Ove" film with its director Hannes Holm. Total number of pictures in the queue: 9,700.
