NBF Presents: Colleges, Libraries & Festivals
NBF Presents programs bring National Book Award–honored authors and nationally recognized moderators to libraries, colleges, book festivals, and performance venues for public readings, discussions, and presentations. NBF Presents is designed to give audiences—whether in urban, suburban, or rural communities—access to some of our country’s most renowned writers and their books and to create spaces where authors and audiences can connect, be in dialogue, and share ideas.
The NBF aims to leave no reader or community overlooked, and to be a catalyst for conversations through great books.
NBF Presents is made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Unless otherwise noted, all programs made possible by our partners and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
For times and locations for events, please visit the Foundation’s events calendar at www.nationalbook.org/events-calendar or the websites of any of our partners.
This event will stream live on this page starting at 7:30pm (ET) on Thursday, February 27, 2020.
The Foundation returns to Rollins College for their annual Winter with the Writers literary festival, featuring a joint reading with 2019 Fiction Finalist Kali Fajardo-Anstine’s debut short story collection Sabrina & Corina and Poetry Finalist Ilya Kaminsky’s Deaf Republic, followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience. Moderated by Carol Frost, festival director and professor of English at Rollins College.
This program is supported by the Rollins Department of English.
