  1. Hello, is there any possibility of bringing the National Book Festival to Boston Massachusetts for all the book worms?
    Please let me know if there’s a way to make it happen.
    Thank you

  2. I will not be able to volunteer this year and will really miss it. But I will watch on line as much as I can see, and plan to be with you in person next year volunteering.

    • We appreciate your support of the festival!

  3. Non-fiction and inspirational books and authors.

  4. I am crossing my fingers that our internet is in full power because I plan to participate via distance. I love the experience and thank you for making the presentation available on YouTube even after the event is done. (Just incase our rural internet is not working when the festival is live) I am a great fan of the Library of Congress. I am grateful for the connection to this deeply respected resource.

  5. I’m hoping to attend a few of the webinars, fingers crossed my schedule works out.
