Are you coming to the 17th annual Library of Congress National Book Festival? It’s this Saturday, September 2nd at the Washington Convention Center. We hope you will come and see the more than 100 authors, illustrators, and poets who are speaking this year. But we also hope you will stop in and visit us in the Kids & Teachers – Read and Learn area in the Expo Hall. We’ll have activities for all ages, all day.
Here are just a few:
- Join us at 1:30pm for a workshop with the award-winning author Jack Gantos on using a journal to spur writing.
- Take a picture with Thomas Jefferson.
- See some teen and children’s books that will be featured at the festival.
- Learn more about our resources for teachers.
Download the Children’s Guide to the National Book Festival and get the schedule of authors for children and teens, find a scavenger hunt to use at the festival, and learn about the other events that will be happening at the festival. Kids can learn how to create a maze, hear from our new student poets, and find out about the Library’s comic book collection.
We can’t wait to see all of you on Saturday!
