National Book Festival: New Events, New Venue

This year, the highly-anticipated and widely attended Library of Congress National Book Festival will take place in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center for the first time.

*NEW* Listen to a podcast interview with National Ambassador Kate DiCamillo, who will be appearing at this year’s festival!


This year’s festival will offer new and exciting happenings – such as evening events in addition to the author talks, book-signings, and activities for families and children that attendees have come to recognize and love. This has been a popular event for readers since 2001, and over 200,000 visitors have attended in recent years.

Free and open to the public.
