It’s a major can’t-miss for anyone who loves to dive into a story.
Diane Stelfox Cook has been attending the National Book Festival since its inception in 2001. Committed to promoting a love of reading and shining the spotlight on the importance of literacy, the Festival is a hallmark of the Library of Congress’s work in the United States of America. Originally created in a collaborative effort by Former First Lady Laura Bush and the Librarian of Congress James H.
