Art, Music & Literature
If you are a fan of art, music and literature than the District of Columbia abounds with fantastic opportunities to indulge this weekend, September 24 and 25. During the day the Library of Congress will be hosting its annual National Book Festival. This festival brings the nation’s best authors, illustrators, and poets to Washington to discuss their work and meet their fans. This year’s lineup includes Eugene Robinson, Terry McMillan, Terrance Hayes and the literary legend Toni Morrison. View a complete schedule of authors, activities and signings here.

This event is an all night exploration of contemporary art stretching from Chinatown to Shaw. Hosted in traditional and nontraditional spaces, events will take place from 7pm – 3am.
