Join the Party! #NatBookFest Pre-Party on Twitter

National Book Festival Twitter Pre-Party: 2-3 pm ET Thursday, Aug. 30, 2018. Follow @LibraryCongress and use the hashtag #NatBookFest to join the party.

The days are ticking off until the Library of Congress National Book Festival, which will take place over Labor Day Weekend. And with just over a week to go until the 18th annual literary extravaganza, we can’t wait to celebrate with you — so we will start the celebration early!

You can virtually attend our National Book Festival Twitter Pre-Party, this coming Thursday, August 30 from 2-3 p.m. ET. We will preview this year’s stellar author line-up, review favorite festival memories, discuss various ways to connect with and support the festival, and provide tips for attending the event in Washington, D.C.

Follow @LibraryCongress and use the hashtag #NatBookFest to join the conversation next Thursday!

    Wish I could participate in the pre-party, but I will be on an airplane headed to DC while the party is going on. See you at the Convention Center!

    My family and I enjoy the NBF every year. We can hardly wait.
