Washington may have changed, but the National Book Festival lives on.

The ninth annual National Book Festival, organized and sponsored by the Library of Congress, will be held this Saturday, September 26, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., between 7th and 14th streets from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The festival is free and open to the public.

Authors will talk about their work, read from it, and conduct book signings. The list of featured authors is long, but some of the headliners include Tim O’Brien, John Irving, James Patterson, John Grisham, Michael Connelly, David Baldacci, Julia Glass, Julia Alvarez, Judy Blume, Jeff Kinney, Jodi Picoult, Nicholas Sparks, Junot Diaz, Sue Monk Kidd, Ken Burns, Walter Mosley, George Pelecanos, Azar Nafisi, and Lisa Scottoline.
