Festival for Those Who Can’t Live Without Books

Two hundred years ago, the Library of Congress acquired Thomas Jefferson’s personal library. “I cannot live without books,” he said.

Which happens to be the theme of this year’s National Book Festival, featuring almost as many authors as there were books in that collection.

The 15th annual National Book Festival takes place this Saturday, September 5.

Featured authors include Kwame Alexander, David Baldacci, Tom Brokaw, Stephen L. Carter, Louise Erdrich, Walter Isaacson, Nicholas Kristof, Azar Nafisi, Marilynne Robinson, Al Roker, and Jane Smiley.

See you on the National Mall!
