The Library of Congress has just announced that it has received a $5 million donation from David M. Rubenstein, cofounder of the Carlyle Group. The donation, spread over the next 5 years, makes the festival’s future more certain, as it was founded by Laura Bush in her first year as First Lady and was relying on the interest of subsequent First Ladies to continue.
