National Book Festival

National Book Festival

August 31, 2019 at 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


The Library of Congress’s annual festival is back to fulfill the dreams of bibliophiles who long to fit an entire month’s worth of book talks and author readings into one day. This year’s focus on America’s Changemakers highlights Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, restaurateur/activist José Andrés, and scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr., all of whom will appear to discuss their work.
