Get Out! The LOC National Book Festival Is in Town on Saturday!

by Peggy Robin

Why do I love living in Washington, DC? I could come up with a top 100 list and one of the things that would definitely be in the top ten is the National Book Festival. It's put on every year for FREE by the Library of Congress on the Saturday of the Labor Day weekend. 

You can spend some time scouting out the authors and book talks and panel discussions and kids' events to be sure you hit the events that hold the most appeal for you, or you can just wander around and let serendipity lead you to authors and books you might never have discovered had you not gone.

If you're a planner, start here:

If you're a wanderer and a serendipity-believer, then just show up the the Library of Congress National Book Festival at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on Saturday, September 3, any time between 9am and 8 pm.

You can't go wrong, either way!
The "Get Out!" event of the week is published on the Cleveland Park Listserv and on All Life Is Local on Thursdays.
