March 8 & 9, 2019

Each year, the festival brings together educators librarians, parents, students, authors, illustrators, editors and those interested in children’s literature for a unique combination of full conference and small group sessions. This year, our faculty is once again chosen from the “best of the best.” As one attendee said, “I thought you would never top this year’s conference—then I saw your 2019 line-up. I’m ready to sign up now!”

Award winning 2019 Festival faculty includes Joe CepedaSharon DraperBethany HegedusJoyce SidmanDoreen Rappaport and Richard Michelson and more, much more.

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.” “Practical ideas for my classroom” and library.
