National Book Festival 2016

The 16th Library of Congress' National Book Festival took place this past Saturday in Washington D.C. Tracy and I (Ally M.) went as representatives for Mississippi in the Pavilion of the States.

Every year, each state's Center for the Book sends representatives to man the booths representing their state and educate festival goers about their state's literary culture. Every state selects a children's book and features it at the book festival. This year, our featured book was Elvis: The Story of the Rock and Roll King by Bonnie Christensen. We even had the King at our table in his best gold suit available for selfies!

We had a great time promoting all of the wonderful things Mississippi has to offer. Go here for more information about the National Book Festival and here for more information on the Mississippi Center for the Book.
