Today, meet all the authors and see their books at a public autographing session and book sale here in the Eureka Main Library. The Humboldt County Children's Author Festival brings well-known, published authors to Humboldt County, where they visit schools to talk with students about books and the business and craft of writing, and promote the exciting idea that people create books and that children can write as well as read. This year, 24 authors and illustrators have arrived from throughout the country to visit Humboldt County. They will visit about 55 Humboldt County schools to talk about themselves and their work to thousands of school children.
