2017 National Book Festival
September 2, 2017 • Nutmeg News

Books! Authors! Costumed characters!

It was all that and much more at the 17th Library of Congress National Book Festival.

Connecticut Center for the Book, a program of Connecticut Humanities and the state affiliate of the Library of Congress Center for the Book, had a place at the Pavilion of the States on Saturday 2 and it is safe to say that thousands of people stopped by and chatted with Connecticut Humanities and Connecticut State Library staff. We met lots of folks from Connecticut and many who had visited and enjoyed their stay our state. Booth visitors got to learn about Stubby the War Dog, a true story of World War I’s bravest dog, and his best friend J. Robert Conroy, both from Connecticut, and of course, got to pick up all the Connecticut related materials available!

Below is a video from the opening night gala. Enjoy!
