Children's Literature Festival

Charlotte Huck Children's Literature Festival 2015


Children’s Literature Festival 2014 is a now a wonderful memory of an exciting weekend filled with the best of children’s books and their creators. Each year, the festival brings together educators, students, illustrators, authors, librarians, editors, and all those interested in children’s literature.

As one attendee said, “I thought you would never top this year’s conference—then I saw your 2015 line-up. I’m ready to sign up now!”

Festival faculty for 2015 includes award winning authors, artists, and editors: Avi, Lois Ehlert, Peter Brown, Jennifer L. Holm, Rebecca Kai Dotlich, Marc Tyler NoblemanKristine O’Connell George and Allyn Johnston.

Why do people come—and keep coming back? In the words of past participants, it is:

“A small, intimate conference where you can spend time with the authors and illustrators.”

“A unique opportunity to spend time with others who share a passion about children’s books.”

“I never know what will happen, but it is always what I needed.”
