Join CCPL in celebrating the 2021 Library of Congress National Book Festival, taking place between Sept. 17 through Sept. 26. The spectacular lineup includes authors, poets, and illustrators from America and around the world.
From the National Book Festival’s website* This year’s festival offers a variety of ways to access programs, allowing attendees to tailor their experience and interests to their preferred mode of participation. Festival content will be available online through videos on demand, author conversations in real time and live question-and-answer sessions, as well as a new podcast series, a national television special and some in-person, ticketed events at the Library. Local libraries, community centers and attendees are also encouraged to host watch parties and other community events in their local areas.
The theme of this year’s festival, “Open a Book, Open the World,” will be the starting point for many conversations with authors, often discussing how their own books open up new worlds for their readers.
