September 20, 2021
Monday, September 20 to Sunday, October 23, 2021. Libraries are open Tuesday through Saturday. It's hard for authors to travel safely at this time, and our usual excited crowds for Children's Author Festival events aren't practical either, so all activities are things you can do on your own or inside your bubble, in the real world or online.
Monday September 20, Children's Author Festival Events Begin!
Monday, September 20, 2021
This year, the Children's Author Festival honors authors and illustrators -- and students as readers, writers and illustrators -- with a reading challenge in September and October. This includes 15 days of reading, writing, and other activities, with a chance to win prizes (small prizes are available for all ages, books can be won only by children and teens) and the opportunity to see and hear the authors in an online video. Except for the author video option, everything can be done either in the real world, or online, as you prefer.
