The 2017 Library of Congress National Book Festival is happening this weekend, and it's truly a wonderful event for readers and families of all ages. We're thrilled that, once again, Scholastic has lots to offer visitors at our booth in the Washington Convention Center. Come stop by!
In the Scholastic booth you'll find tons of activities, giveaways and even poetry performances from the award-winning National Student Poets! You can also pose for photos with Clifford the Big Red Dog, Captain Underpants, and Dog Man. Plus, at the top of every hour from 9am to 7pm, we'll be hosting read-alouds. It's the perfect place to come have a rest and be entertained with great books!
Of course, our Scholastic authors will be there too, hosting readings and book signings. Check out the schedule:
