This year the National Book Festival celebrated its fourth year and played host to more than 70 different authors and their respective literary traditions. Sponsored by the Library of Congress, the authors include those who write biographies, works of poetry, and fantasy. On the website, visitors can learn about the various authors who appeared at the Festival, and learn about different ideas that will assist both teachers and librarians in creating a safe, nurturing environment that will allow people to learn more about reading. Of course, the real highlights on the site are the archived webcasts from the Festival. Here visitors can watch these talks and discussions by such authors as Clive Cussler, Peter Straub, Richard Peck, R.L. Stine, Arthur Frommer, and the ever-popular Anna Quindlen.
