National Book Festival

Please note: This event has already occurred.
The Library of Congress National Book Festival returns with a stacked lineup -- though perhaps not as tall as the tower of books on your nightstand. The 2014 festival has moved indoors, from the Mall to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, and the new location comes with perks: The festival has added three pavilions and extended its hours until 10 p.m. Scheduled speakers include retired Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O'Connor, former poet laureate Billy Collins and National Book Award-winner E.L Doctorow, along with more than 100 others.
