Hello, National Book Festival fans—
Thanks for your continued interest in the Library of Congress National Book Festival. Through this blog, we’ve been able to reach out and provide the latest information on the annual Festival and share lineups, videos, tips for visiting Washington D.C. and more.
Starting tomorrow, instead of a “National Book Festival Blog,” you’ll be receiving posts from “Bookmarked: Celebrating Contemporary Books and Writers at the Library.” Don’t worry: You’ll still get all the Festival updates just like you have in the past.
This new blog will add content from our “From the Catbird Seat: Poetry and Literature” blog to provide you with not only the latest about the National Book Festival, but news and stories about poetry and the poetry scene, connections between contemporary books and the Library’s collections, and interviews with the United States Poet Laureate and the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, among other literary content related to the Library.
If you already subscribe to the National Book Festival blog, we’ll rollover your subscription to “Bookmarked” and you don’t need to do anything. If you don’t subscribe already, here’s an easy way to do so, and we hope you do subscribe.
We have been busy putting together our author lineup for this year’s Festival and are building an exciting experience for you. Stay tuned for a big announcement about the 2023 National Book Festival, coming soon.
We’ll see you soon at “Bookmarked”!
