  • This year’s multi-format Festival garnered more than 317,000 views on a variety of platforms.
  • The next Festival will return as an in-person event during Labor Day weekend 2022 at the Washington Convention Center.
  • We’ve announced a new chief of our Literary Initiatives division, who will be curating the 2022 Festival.
  • And this Sunday, Oct. 10, our longtime partner Book  TV on C-SPAN2 will feature several author conversations from this year’s festival.
