Kate DiCamillo, Jason Reynolds, Meg Medina, Derrick Barnes, Tahereh Mafi and Traci Chee in Teens and Children’s Lineup

This year’s National Book Festival will include an extraordinary lineup of authors for children, teens and kids of all ages – all featured in videos on demand accessible from the start of the festival, which runs Sept. 17-26.

Five children’s authors and five teen authors will also participate in live, online Q&A events Sept. 25 and 26. Access to all children’s and teens content will begin on Sept. 17 at 10 a.m. ET at loc.gov/bookfest. The theme of this year’s festival, “Open a Book, Open the World,” will be the starting point for many conversations with authors, often discussing how their own books open up new worlds for their readers.

A learning guide for teachers and students to engage with the Festival is also available.
