The Washington DC Book Festival has set the date for this year's festivities.
The largest library in the country is holding the largest literary festival in the country. The 15th Annual National Book Festival has set a date for this year's action. Taking place on September 5, 2015, our Capital will feature an outstanding celebration of literacy and education. This year is even more special for the Library of Congress and the National Book Festival as it marks the fifteenth anniversary of the annual book festival. It has also been 200 years since the Library of Congress was established, so, to commemorate this historic occasion, this year's theme is the Thomas Jefferson quote, "I Cannot Live Without Books."
This year, the book festival will feature more than 150 authors who will be speaking or giving presentations on the art of writing. These presentations will take place in a series of pavilions, with each one dedicated to a different genre or style. Guests can visit the Library of Congress pavilion to get a glimpse at the inner workings of the Library. Children can enjoy collecting stickers celebrating all 50 states, as well as D.C. and American territories, at the Pavilion of the States. Each of the 52 tables is dedicated to the rich literary history of one of the states. You can visit the official Library of Congress National Book Festival website for more details on guests, times and other special events.
