Back during Labor Day weekend, the Library of Congress hosted the 14th annual National Book Festival at the Washington Convention Center. We posted the notice here, showcasing all of the amazing graphic novel programming, but now the Library of Congress has posted videos from most of the sessions!
Click on the red titles to go to the event page, where one can read a synopsis, transcript, and watch the video if the embedded images do not work.
Gene Luen Yang’s speech is at 19:30, but I recommend watching the entire video!
“Rep. John Lewis and Andrew Aydin appear at the 2014 Library of Congress National Book Festival in Washington, D.C.”
I’ve been writing for The Beat since July of 2010.
I’ve been reading comics since 1974, collecting since 1984, and spreading the graphic novel gospel since 1994.
I’m a bookseller, a librarian, an amateur scholar, a cool uncle, and a comics evangelist.
Ask me anything!
