Join Us at the National Book Festival September 21 and 22

 NCBLA to Present Readers Theater
at National Book Festival
Thank You to Candlewick Press
for Donating Prize Books

Jon Scieszka and Katherine Paterson.
Make plans now to bring the young people in your life to the NCBLA's Readers Theater at the National Book Festival in Washington, D.C. Our very special presentation will include award-winning authors KATHERINE PATERSON, JON SCIESZKA, SUSAN COOPER, and GRACE LIN!

Also participating in the reading will be literacy champions Carol Rasco, President and CEO of Reading Is Fundamental (RIF), and Lynda Johnson Robb, a former First Lady of Virginia and a founding board member and Chairman Emeritus of RIF. NCBLA President and Executive Director Mary Brigid Barrett will be introducing the presentation.

Readers Theater is a dramatic presentation similar to a radio play. Our presentation is inspired by books written by our four participating authors. We hope you can join us on Sunday, September 22 at 4:35 p.m. in the Special Programs Pavilion at the National Book Festival, held on the mall in Washington, D.C.

Twenty lucky members of the audience will each receive a copy of one of the NCBLA's books, either the art and literature anthology Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out  or the progressive story game The Exquisite Corpse Adventure, courtesy of Candlewick Press. Thank you Candlewick!
