New Mexico’s Great Read 2020

In a typical year, “[t]he Library of Congress National Book Festival (NBF) is an annual literary event in Washington, DC that brings together best-selling authors and thousands of book fans for author talks, panel discussions, book signings and other activities.” Every year the National Book Festival also hosts the Parade of States where each state is represented by a state library, a state center for the book, or humanities organization which showcases a local book or author. Given the current Covid-19 situation, the Library of Congress has decided to host a virtual parade of the states called Road Map to Reading – Great Reads from Great Places.
