The 2016 National Book Festival, sponsored by the Library of Congress, is scheduled for Saturday, September 24, 2016, at the Washington Convention Center. Originally sited on the Mall, it was relocated a few years ago due to concern about the thousands of attendees effect on the grounds.
Who’s appearing from the wonder world of comics?
TWO Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonists! TWO finalists for the National Book Award! And the rest? Whoa… This is a stellar group! Scroll down for the schedules and links to the author pages.
Matter of fact, the entire roster of 120+ authors and illustrators is spectacular! You know that feeling at Comic-Con, when there are two or three panels you want to see, but they’re at the same time? That’s what the National Book Festival is like for bibliophiles. Thankfully, the Library of Congress archives the video, for free, and you’ll be able to watch it a few months later. (We’ll have a master list of past videos here soon.)
