Events sponsored by the Center for the Book

Author discussions, symposia and other events are an important part of the programming of the Center for the Book. The long-running Books & Beyond author series has attracted writers from across the country to discuss their books and the writing life, and to talk about how they have used the resources of the Library of Congress in their work. Most of these presentations are filmed for later webcasting.
