“NBF Presents: Summer with the National Book Awards” visits libraries across the country

July 2019



Following the 2019 spring season, NBF Presents—a national program that provides access to some of our country’s most renowned writers and their books—will launch a summer event series in July and August with libraries that have also served as local partners for NBF’s Book Rich Environments program.

For NBF Presents: Summer with the National Book Awards, library branches in Akron, OH; Allen County, IN; New Bedford, MA; Roanoke, VA; and Sarasota, FL will host authors including Charmaine Craig, Diana Khoi Nguyen, Rebecca Makkai, Nafissa Thompson-Spires, Margaret Wilkerson Sexton, and Monica Youn, with more to come, for conversations on characters, craft, and more.
