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.
