2015 National Book Festival Poster

 

This Saturday, September 5th, you can check out the 15th annual Library of Congress National Book Festival. Held this year at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

It’s free to attend. This is the second year they’ve held it indoors at the Convention Center (while the renovation continues on The Mall).

This year’s theme is “I Cannot Live Without Books.” It is a quote from Thomas Jefferson, and a reference to the 200th anniversary of the Library’s acquisition of his personal library.

There will be over 170 authors, poets and illustrators featured throughout the day.

Here’s the schedule.

Find the Map and additional info here.

There is also an National Book Festival app available to help customize your personal itinerary for the day.
