The Library of Congress > National Book Festival > Authors > Literary Lights Readers Theater

The Center for the Book in the Library of Congress and its reading promotion partner, the National Children’s Book and Literacy Alliance, will present a young people’s Literary Lights Readers Theater program. Readers Theater is a dramatic presentation of a work in script form, similar to a radio play. Literary Lights presenters include favorite young people’s authors Katherine Paterson, Jon Scieszka, Grace Lin and Susan Cooper, and the program will showcase their books. Special guests Carol Rasco, president and CEO of Reading Is Fundamental, and literacy advocate Lynda Johnson Robb will also take part.
