Quick question that others might benefit from also, Guy--when i try to reserve the room, I see it's specified for check in Weds and check out Monday.  I'm guessing the only days when we'll actually be doing things specific to CFB or NBF are Friday and Saturday though, yes?  Just want to confirm that's correct, though, before I pull the trigger on the hotel room.  Thanks!

If you are participating in the Parade of the States at the National Book Festival, please see the info below for making hotel reservations.


We are using the Cambria, the same hotel as last year and within walking distance of the convention center,


The Library of Congress National Book Festival has reserved a block of rooms at the Cambria Hotel & Suites, 899 O St. NW.

The rate for single and double occupancy is $165 + taxes/fees. The cutoff date for guaranteed reservations is Wednesday, August 7, 2019. To make a reservation go to: https://www.choicehotels.com/reservations/groups/RL51V9, or call the hotel directly at 202-552-5427, Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. excluding weekends and holidays.



I urge you to reserve ASAP, as there is a limited number of rooms and they may become reserved before Aug. 7. FYI: The link takes a while to open.
