National Book Festival 2014

National Book Festival 2014

The 2014 National Book Festival is running until 10:00 PM Saturday August 30th in Washington DC, produced by the Library of Congress. This year’s festival was kicked off the National Mall and is being held in the cavernous Walter E. Washington Convention Center, but they could have held it in a phone booth. 24 percent of Americans haven’t read a book in the last year, and those who did read around 5, probably comic books.

You can attend for free. Go to the Culinary Arts Pavilion to enjoy America’s new National Pastime, watching other people cook.
