This issue of our newsletter is devoted to the Library of Congress National Book Festival, which begins in less than an hour! It all kicks off at 11 a.m. with Michael J. Fox talking about his new memoir, “No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers Mortality,” and then U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo will talk about her new memoir, “Poet Warrior.”
Ron Charles, book critic for the Washington Post, dedicates today’s edition of his weekly Book Club newsletter to the Library of Congress’s National Book Festival, which started this morning in Washington, D.C. This post is chock full of information, including the schedule of presentations and directions for viewing them online.
Charles’s newsletter arrives every Friday, and it’s one of the emails I most look forward to all week. It’s free, and you’ll find a link to subscribe at the top left of this page. I encourage you to click it, and I guarantee you won’t regret signing up.
And now I’m off to peruse my print-out of the Festival schedule and circle the events that I want to watch . . .
