James Swanson, author of books on the pursuit of John Wilkes Booth and Jefferson Davis, will attend this year's Literary Hill BookFest.

Other authors who will attend the festival include: Mary Z. Gray, a 93-year-old lifelong resident of Capitol Hill who published a memoir this year about her familys funeral parlor located at 301 East Capitol St.; Marguerite Kelly, whose column The Family Almanac appears in the Washington Post; New York Times best-selling author James Swanson, author of books on the pursuit of John Wilkes Booth and Jefferson Davis; and Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post columnist Gene Weingarten.

Every month, Im amazed by the great books people send me to review, and to think that theres all that talent here on the Hill is just astounding and a great incentive to come out [to the festival], Lyon said.
