The Fall Festival of Books

The Children’s Literature Connection and the English Department of Hudson Valley Community College present:
The Fall Festival of Books, C.L.C.'s 4th annual greeting/selling/autographing celebration of children’s literature. School and public librarians, educators and the general public are invited to meet authors and illustrators, buy their books and chat as books are autographed. Professionals are encouraged to speak with authors about school visits, and hear about exciting upcoming projects. It’s a great time to think about unique holiday gifts, too.

This year, for the first time, the authors will have the opportunity to showcase their work via individual presentations. This year, authors will include:
Sylvie Kantorovitz (Wickstrom), Matt McElligott, Karen Beil, Kyra Teis, Alexandra Siy, Rose Kent, Eric Luper, Thomas Styles, Marlene Newman, Liza Frenette, Daniel Mahoney, Peter Marino, and Bob Hervey.

In addition, there will be a door prize. Attendees qualify for a free author visit from award winning writer Jennifer Armstrong.

This is a free event; no registration is required. Free parking is available. For directions to HVCC’’s Bulmer Telecommunications Center, go here.
