The Library of Congress reported that the 2021 National Book Festival, held mostly virtually this year from September 17 through September 26, drew more than 317,000 views in just its first few weeks. The full slate of festival programs remains available on demand for those of you looking for something good to watch this weekend. One program that seems particularly appealing to Fine Books readers is “The Visible Book: A Look Inside at Book Construction, Historic to Modern” with the library’s book conservators. Check it out below.
