Library of Congress—National Book Festival

The Library of Congress National Book Festival is an annual literary event that brings together best-selling authors and thousands of book fans for author talks, panel discussions, book signings and other activities.

Since 2010, David, who also serves as Co-Chairman of the National Book Festival Board, has been the lead benefactor of the festival and in 2013 pledged funding for the event for five more years.
