About the National Book Festival
The National Book Festival was co-founded in 2001 by first lady Laura Bush with the Library of Congress. The festival celebrates creators and draws thousands of readers together each year to engage with writers and the national library.
Most authors will participate in book signings following their events. Festivalgoers will be able to purchase books by the featured authors from Politics and Prose, the official bookseller of the 2023 National Book Festival, in advance at politics-prose.com/ and onsite at the festival.
A selection of programs will be livestreamed online, and videos of all programs will be available shortly after the festival at loc.gov/bookfest.
The National Book Festival is made possible by the generous support of private- and public-sector sponsors who share the Library’s commitment to reading and literacy, led by National Book Festival Co-Chair David M. Rubenstein. Sponsors include: Institute of Museum and Library Services, General Motors, James Madison Council, National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, and the John W. Kluge Center; additional support provided by the CoStar Group, For The People Fund, with seed funding provided by the Ford Foundation, Sharjah Book Authority, Friends of the Library of Congress, Library of Congress Federal Credit Union and The Hay-Adams.
