      National Press Club's 2019 Book Fair & Authors' Night

      One hundred authors — and their books — will be under one roof at the National Press Club, just in time for the gift-giving season. Navigate national politics and history, whisk your way to tasty treats, or laugh with your little one during the 2019 Book Fair and Authors’ Night on Friday, Nov. 1, 2019. Book Fair guests can shop titles and meet the authors behind incredible nonfiction and fiction tales in more than a dozen genres. It’s your chance to mingle with your favorite author and discover new ones, including Marlin Fitzwater, Calm Before the Storm; Dorothy Butler Gilliam, Trailblazer; and James Reston Jr., The Impeachment Diary. The fair will feature a robust children’s section, along with selections in cooking, sports, fiction, health and medicine, history, law, lifestyle, mystery, psychology, sports, travel, true crime, and regional interests. The National Press Club Journalism Institute has partnered with landmark local bookseller Politics & Prose to coordinate the event. The list of participating authors and their titles (to date) is below.  Tickets are $10 for the public and $5 for NPC or Politics & Prose members. The fair takes place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. November 1 at the National Press Club, on the 13th floor of the National Press Building.  In addition to being an opportunity to meet authors and pick up gifts for the avid readers in your life, the Book Fair raises funds for The National Press Club Journalism Institute, the non-profit affiliate of the National Press Club.  National Press Club members and their guests are also invited to stop in the Reliable Source for a roast beef buffet either before or after visiting the book fair. The buffet opens at 5:30 p.m. The price of the roast beef buffet is $30 for Club members and $35 for non-members plus tax and gratuity. Reservations are encouraged.
