Some of what you can expect... More than 100 authors, illustrators and poets will make presentations on the National Mall throughout the weekend in the Fiction & Mystery, History & Biography, Contemporary Life, Poetry & Prose, Children, and Teens pavilions, the Family Storytelling Stage, and (Sunday only) The Cutting Edge, State Poets Laureate, and Graphic Novels will be represented under the banner of the Pavilion of the States.
