Laura Bush, the wife of President George W. Bush, hosted the first National Book Festival with the Librarian of Congress, James H. Billington. Mrs. Bush was the founder of the successful Texas Book Festival, which is held every year.

If you don't live in the Washington, D.C., area and are unable to attend the Book Festival in person, why not visit your local library and read a book?
