Stay Up With a Good Book at the National Book Festival - or Your Local Library

Saturday, August 30th marks the 14th year of the Library of Congress National Book Festival. The theme for this free public festival is “Stay up with a Good Book."  Past years the festival has been held over two days on the National Mall, but this year’s event will take place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC, on one day from 10 am to 10 pm. Several evening events are planned, with a poetry slam, a “Great Books to Great Movies” session and for those graphic novel fans a “super-session." President and Mrs. Obama are the Honorary Chairs for this year’s festival.

Dread the traffic and parking hassles of getting into DC? Stop by any Fauquier County Public Library. We've got you covered with a wide selection of books by authors participating in the festival!
