National Press Club and Politics & Prose: Two great Washington institutions make one great book fair, Nov. 10

October 31, 2017 | By Julie Schoo | jschoo

More than 90 nationally known authors have signed on to attend the National Press Club’s Book Fair & Authors’ Night on Friday, Nov. 10. They’ll be here to talk with their fans and sign books at this festive literary event. Patrons can browse for books in the Club’s historic ballroom from 5:30 pm to 8:30 p.m.

If political and history buffs are on your holiday shopping list, be sure to visit with Joshua Green who will be there with his new book, “Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency” along with Washington Post reporter Amy Goldstein with “Janesville: An American Story,” and Marie Jenkins Schwartz, author of “Ties That Bound: Founding First Ladies and Slaves.”

A complete list of authors can be found here.

The Book Fair is a fundraiser for The National Press Club Journalism Institute, a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization. The event helps the Institute’s programming and mission, which includes a competitive scholarship program with a focus on promoting diversity among the next generation of journalists and training programs focusing on high standards, ethical conduct and best practices in a rapidly changing media environment.

For a tax deductible contribution of $25, you can become a “Friend of the Book Fair.” You will be recognized in the program, and receive a free ticket to the event. See details here.
