In Case You Missed It!
Watch the Library of Congress National Book Festival Webcast of
and special guest
Lynda Johnson Robb
Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out!
If you could not attend the Library of Congress National Book Festival, you can still see and listen to the NCBLA's Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out presentation on a LOC webcast!
Katherine Paterson and Steven Kellogg, NCBLA Vice-Presidents ; Jon Scieszka, the Library of Congress Children's Book Ambassador; Mary Brigid Barrett, NCBLA President ; and special surprise guest, the former First Lady of Virginia and RIF uber-advocate, Lynda Johnson Robb read from their contributions to the NCBLA's new book Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out at the LOC National Book Festival. We were delighted that LOC's Center for the Book director, the amazing John Cole, introduced our presentation and only regret that he did not have a chance to read from his contribution to Our White House--his delightful essay about First Lady Laura Bush founding of the National Book Festival.
