In anticipation of the upcoming National Book Festival, NAFSA: Association of International Educators joins the Library of Congress in celebrating the role of books and reading in shaping our world. As the preeminent publisher in international education, NAFSA understands the importance of connecting readers with diverse voices and perspectives. We commend the Library of Congress for continually bringing programming that excels in this capacity to the D.C. metropolitan area.

This year, attendees will have the opportunity to convene with figures prolific in U.S. society and abroad—including Madeleine Albright, Sonia Sotomayor, and Amy Tan, all of whom have been influenced by cross-cultural exchange.

NAFSA continues to contribute to diversity in the publishing industry by producing a library of resources that serve the diverse needs of professionals, researchers, and participants in international education. These publications promote cross-cultural collaboration and the exchange of knowledge across borders. Some of NAFSA’s most recent publications guide readers through successful partnerships abroad, changes in immigration law, best practices for international students and their parents, and reflection activities for study abroad returnees. As you plot out your fall reading list in preparation for the upcoming National Book Festival, we invite you to browse our new and upcoming titlesIcon PDF 16.
