This celebration of writers and readers is
sponsored this year by the Library of Congress and Honorary Chairs President Obama and
Mrs. Obama. The Book Festival has become the
hallmark of literary events in the nation’s capital, drawing thousands of
visitors and garnering national media attention.
Celebrating a “Decade of Words and
Wonder”, the Book Festival is bringing more than 75 award-winning authors,
illustrators, and poets to the National Mall between 3rd and
7th streets. Author Pavilions will include Children, Teens &
Children, Fiction & Mystery, History & Biography, Contemporary Life, and
Poetry & Prose.
