Book Fairs, Storytelling Festivals and Other Literary Events Across the U.S.A. and Around the World
The Library of Congress has held a National Book Festival every year since 2001. These festivals are a celebration of the nation's creative writing community. Many states, counties and cities also hold book festivals that recognize the achievements of local authors. See if there is one near you.
What if everyone read the same book and then joined all those readers in talking about it? That's the idea behind One Book. A state or city chooses a book and encourages everyone in that area to read the book and discuss it. Find a One Book project in your state or city. Or start your own project.
