2019 Book Fair and Authors’ Night

Meet and mingle with nearly 100 authors during the 2019 Book Fair and Authors’ Night at the National Press Club headquarters. The Capitol region’s premier holiday book event is back for its 42nd year on Friday, Nov. 1, 2019. Join the Institute and landmark local bookseller Politics & Prose for a night of pols, pundits and prose.

Patrons will meet well-known authors, and perhaps discover a new favorite, as they browse titles from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Nov. 1 – just in time for holiday gift shopping. Tickets are $10 per person; and $5 for National Press Club and Politics & Prose members.

In addition to being an incredible opportunity to meet your favorite authors and pick up gifts for the avid readers in your life, the Book Fair is a fundraiser for The National Press Club Journalism Institute. The Institute promotes an engaged global citizenry through an independent and free press, and equips journalists with skills and standards to inform the public in ways that inspire civic engagement.

Please note: No outside books or other author and book paraphernalia are allowed into the Fair. All books must be purchased onsite.
