This year’s National Book Festival will, in true 2020 fashion, take place online the weekend of September 25-27, and the author list was recently posted here.

National Book Festival 2017 authors, with varying degrees of photo quality: Chris Bohjalian, Dava Sobel, Emma Donoghue, Dan Chaon, and Ha Jin. The ghostly image of Chaon is a metaphor for the creepiness of his writing.
