National Book Festival 2019: Parade of the States

Follow this link for some great insight, tips and insider info for what to expect at the Parade of the States at the 2019 National Book Festival. And if you ever wonder why they call it the “Parade” of the States:

“It’s a parade, as in “to exhibit ostentatiously or to flaunt.” What the National Book Festival’s Parade of the States is flaunting is the literary heritage of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Territories.”
