They came from Valley Forge. They came from New York. They came from as far south as North Carolina and as far north as Toronto. What brought them all to King of Prussia yesterday? The Philly Author Fest! For one afternoon, forty authors took over the Hyatt House ballroom and talked writing and reading with old fans and new. 

From the minute the doors opened, the excitement was palpable. Camera flashes lit up the room. There were ear-splitting squees of delight and hugs all around. 

Same time, next year? Why not?
