The Youth Literature Festival celebrates the value of literature in the lives of youth by bringing together local and national authors, illustrators, poets, and storytellers to share their stories, their craft, and their enthusiasm with children, teens and adults. Author visits to area schools are a central part of the festival activities. The festival also includes a Community Day Celebration that is free to the public on October 6, 2012. Community Day activities encourage all ages to share in the value of literature with hands-on activities, performances, and author presentations.
Event is free and open to children and adults of all ages!
