About this Event

Please join us for a special evening with Dav Pilkey, a Library of Congress National Book Festival Presents event.

International bestselling author/illustrator Dav Pilkey will appear at the Library of Congress on his Do Good Tour. The tour connects children, parents and educators while highlighting how books inspire readers. It also explores how individuals can make positive differences every day. At the event, attendees will:

  • HEAR Dav Pilkey's inspiring story of his struggles with ADHD and dyslexia
  • SEE Dav Pilkey’s interactive presentation with live drawing
  • SEE a special performance of scenes from the critically-acclaimed Dog Man: The Musical featuring the original off-Broadway cast
  • MEET and have your picture taken with Dav Pilkey himself after the show (with the purchase of a copy of Dav’s new book from Politics and Prose when you register or at the event)
  • PURCHASE a signed copy of Dog Man #7 For Whom The Ball Rolls at the event itself
  • MEET and take photos with Captain Underpants and Dog Man characters!
  • CREATE your own stories at Harold’s Drawing Station
  • SHARE how you make a positive impact on the #DoGood Wall
  • GET a Reading Gives You Superpowers Cape and other fun giveaways (while supplies last)!
  • HAVE an amazing time! It's going to be SO MUCH FUN!

Copies of Dog Man #7 For Whom The Ball Rolls are available for pre-purchase during ticket registration. In addition, Dog Man # 7 For Whom the Ball Rolls and other Dav Pilkey books will be available for purchase at the event.

There will be a signing after the presentation. To join the signing line for this event and meet Dav Pilkey, attendees must purchase a copy of his latest book Dog Man #7 For Whom The Ball Rolls when registering for a ticket or onsite at the event. No memorabilia or books from home will be signed.

The event is free and open to the public; however, tickets are required for entry. Seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis. A ticket does not guarantee entry into the event.

When the auditorium reaches capacity, some ticketed guests will be seated in the Library’s magnificent Great Hall and view most of the program on screens. A small portion of the program will take place in the Great Hall and the guests in the auditorium will watch on screens.

Doors open at 5:45 p.m. Latecomers will be seated at the discretion of house management. We recommend arriving when doors open.

Please request ADA accommodations at least 5 days in advance by contacting (202) 707-6362 or ada@loc.gov.

Ticket holders will be invited to view a display of items from the Library’s extensive comic collection in the Whittall Pavillion prior to the start of the event. The display will be available for viewing from 5:45 pm – 7:00pm on the night of the program.

Politics and Prose is proud to be the bookseller for this event.

We are happy that Dav Pilkey’s #DoGood event is popular and that children and parents are excited to be part of the event. Please beware of scammers and scalpers selling tickets. We caution anyone purchasing from 3rd party sellers that they risk denial of admission to the event.
