Some details from what we know, now...


The National Book Festival, organized by the Library of Congress and hosted by the first lady, Laura Bush, will be held on Saturday September 29, on the National Mall in Washington D. C., between 7th and 14th streets from 10 a.m. to 5 a.m. (rain or shine).

The festival is free and open to the public.

The 2006 festival attracted 70 award-winning authors, illustrators, poets and storytellers, and a crowd of more than 85,000.

Festival goers may bring books, or buy them at the festival, for authors to sign. Children can meet some of their storybook characters, who will appear on the festival grounds throughout the day

This is a fantastic opportunity to meet some of your favorite authors.
