National Book Festival
For the first time in three years, the 2022 Library of Congress National Book Festival returns to live audiences in a one-day, all-day festival on Saturday, Sept. 3, from 6 a.m. until 5 p.m. PST in Washington, D.C. The festival will feature more than 120 authors, poets and writers under the theme of “Books Bring Us Together.”
A selection of programs will be livestreamed free online, and videos of all programs will be available shortly after the festival. The full festival schedule can be found here.
The Library of Congress is the world’s largest library, offering access to the creative record of the United States — and extensive materials from around the world — both on-site and online. It is the main research arm of the U.S. Congress and the home of the U.S. Copyright Office. The Library of Congress National Book Festival is a highly anticipated annual event, which draws the young, old and any age in between, appealing to a wide palette of tastes and preferences in genres ranging from adult fiction to fantasy, kid lit to political nonfiction.
