Politics and Prose is proud to be the official bookseller of the 2020 National Book Festival. Starting September 25, the NBF will present a three-day interactive experience online, marked by on-demand videos and live author discussions and culminating in a two-hour televised broadcast on the evening of September 27. Featuring some of the nation’s most prominent authors and other notable figures, the broadcast will be carried by PBS stations from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and hosted by Hoda Kotb of the NBC News Today show. Learn more about the 2020 National Book Festival.

As a special enticement to purchase books highlighted by the festival, P&P will be offering commemorative bookplates signed by authors. Supplies of these are limited and apply only to certain books, so please check availability on P&P’s NBF web pages and place your orders soon.
