Thank you everyone for helping us with a fantastic 2021 National Book Festival, which I hope you all had a chance to enjoy! Programs will remain available at and we’ll be continuing to promote throughout October.


During the Festival, I let updates to the event calendar lapse, but I’d like to get it updated for the upcoming Fall/Winter season soon. Please take some time in the next few days to add any October, November, or even December events/programs that will be available to nationwide audiences (i.e. virtual) to the spreadsheet (


Assuming everything’s business as usual next week (and there’s no shutdown), I’ll take a look at what events have been entered on Tuesday and see if there’s enough events submitted to start updating the calendar.


If you have any questions, please email me at [log in to unmask].


Take care,
