Online social networks are a great way to keep in contact with people you know and have known. I love that my Facebook account let’s me keep up with people from many facets of my life, past and present – from grade school to grad school, dance classes, mom groups, travels, etc. One of my favorite things is Throwback Thursday, #tbt, where folks post pictures that inspire a walk down memory lane. There’s nothing quite like seeing a photo from your high school graduation posted and being informed that people born that year would now be the legal age… that may or may not have happened last week.
At any rate, as we prepare to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the National Book Festival, what better way to take a look back then with our own #tbt posts? And, since our 2015 festival poster designed by Peter de Sève was just announced, let’s start with a look back in the poster gallery at the festival posters and the many illustrators who’ve designed them over the years.
The 2020 Library of Congress National Book Festival, which is free for everyone, will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on Saturday, Aug. 29.
