2019 Festival Schedule Released!

Crowd scene from National Book Festival

We’ve just released the full schedule of author presentations and book signings for this year’s Library of Congress National Book Festival in Washington on Saturday, August 31! You can check out the complete schedule — sortable by time and by Festival Stage — at the National Book Festival website.

Display of "Add to calendar" featureMore than a hundred authors in dozens of presentations and a day filled with book signings might be a little daunting, so we’ve added a new tool to the website that will help out: each presentation and signing contains an “Add to calendar” link that lets you add your desired events to your personal calendar on your computer or phone. Give it a try. And if you’d prefer to use the National Book Festival App, stay tuned—we’ll be updating it early next month.

The 2019 Library of Congress National Book Festival, which is free for everyone, will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on Saturday, Aug. 31. You can get up-to-the-minute news, schedule updates and other important festival information by subscribing to this blog. The festival is made possible by the generosity of sponsors. You too can support the festival by making a gift now.
