The Library’s National Book Festival is almost upon us — it’s Saturday, Aug. 31 — and we wanted to remind you of how much fun awaits. I mean, like in this shot from last year, can you really say you’ve lived until you’ve posed for a happy snap with Captain Underpants?

Or, just hung out at the Children’s Purple Stage for most of the day?

Didn’t think so. We’re looking forward to seeing you at this year’s festival!
