ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- Hey, everybody, welcome to the 20th Library of Congress

National Book Festival.

This year in 2020, when we are in need for inspiration

and a way for American ingenuity to lead us forward,

these creative minds surely do remind us

why the importance of memory, the need for reason,

and the key to imagination are all rooted

in words we find on the page.
