National Book Festival: New Mexico’s Great Read 2024

Every year the Library of Congress hosts an annual literary event, the National Book Festival (NBF), in Washington, DC. The event brings together best-selling authors and thousands of book fans from all over the country. Visitors can attend author talks, panel discussions, go to book signings and participate in other activities such as the Road Map to Reading. The Road Map to Reading is an interactive event where the state and territories are represented by a state library, a state center for the book, or an humanities organization to showcase a local book or author.
