About the Festival

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 (October 16 - 17, 2014) are a central part of the festival activities. The festival also includes a Community Day Celebration that is free to the public on October 18, 2014 from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Community Day activities encourage all ages to share in the value of literature through presentations by each of our authors and special performances by Sinfonia da Camera, BalkanaliaMaggie BrownPuppetry Guild (PDF), Rocky Maffit, Kate Kuperand a choral group from Lincoln's Challenge Academy.
