The 2020 National Book Festival starts today!
Previously, the festival — hosted by the Library of Congress — was held in the Washington, DC Convention Center on a single day in September. But, like lots of activities this year, it’s switched to virtual because of Covid-19. Thanks bunches, Covid.
My family will miss not being able to visit the festival in person, but a virtual festival means many more people can attend. Authors will be doing live Q&As.
From the schedule, looks like today has authors of children’s and YA books, then tomorrow starts authors of grown-up books.
If you’d rather see an alphabetical list of participating authors, here’s that.
