ICYMI: The National Book Festival is just around the corner as well! Sponsored and hosted by the Library of Congress, this one-day extravaganza celebrates the American literary tradition across all genres and formats. Better still, you no longer need to be in Washington D.C. to enjoy the festivities. Courtesy of special funding, most of the main stage events will be livestreamed or recorded for broadcast after the fact.
Headliners will include novelists Rebecca Makkai and TJ Klune, U.S. Poet Laureate Ada Limón, and YA favorites Jesmyn Ward and Elizabeth Acevedo.
Click here to see the full line-up, and here for details about what will be livestreamed (and where). Note that details are still coming online in advance of the big day: Saturday, August 12.
