National Book Fest Hits the Mall

As though the fun and festivities of the Baltimore Book Festival this coming weekend were not enough, there’s another nearby literary festival going on: The National Book Festival in Washington DC. It takes place Saturday, September 24 from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday, September 25 from 1 to 5:30 p.m.

More than 100 authors will headline the two-day National Book Festival, including David McCullough, Russell Banks, Dave Eggers, Pulitzer Prize-winners Siddhartha Mukherjee and Jennifer Egan, Garrison Keillor, Amy Chua, Toni Morrison, Steve Berry, and Julianne Moore.

The National Book Festival is organized and sponsored by the Library of Congress, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are honorary chairs for the event. The festival is free and open to the public.
