    We usually travel from Scotland, UK, and visit our daughter in D.C. BEING AT THE Library of Congress National Book Festival is always a highlight of our visit, as both my daughter and I are bookworms. I’ll miss it so much this year. Thank you for the virtual access using all the new technology. Wishing a huge success to The Festival for 2021.
