How awesome is this?! This year, the annual Library of Congress National Book Festival will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on Saturday, August 30, 2014. It was founded and hosted (2001-2008) by the former First Lady, Laura Bush. A gathering of intellects or just common people that love a good book. Great for kids and adults, alike! I've always wanted to attend since its inception, but was never able to. I hope this year, I will be able to go. There are presentations and book signing by authors, as well as exhibits. For more information or attending authors, check out their website at: http://www.loc.gov/bookfest/.
