Meet some of your favorite authors, illustrators and poets -- for free! -- at the Library of Congress' National Book Festival!

Across the multiple stages, featured authors will include David McCullough, Condoleezza Rize, Kate DiCamillo, Scott Turow, and Ernest Gaines.

This year's festival will take place on Sept. 2 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, 801 Mount Vernon Place NW in Washington, D.C. from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. The Library has updated the National Book Festival app so you can plan your day-of experience.
