Directions to Lincoln School

Once again, we have an exciting list of nationally acclaimed authors and illustrators. Each author and illustrator gives a 30-minute presentation on their work, life, and philosophy. You will have the chance to meet and talk with the authors and illustrators and have your books personally signed. The Festival has a great selection of their books for you to purchase, including new releases.

Between talks, you can participate in bookmaking crafts - perfect for the young and upcoming artist!

The Festival is collaborating with Write Rhode Island, School One and Goat Hill to offer an afternoon for teens starting at 1:00. Come join a flash fiction workshop and Q and A with YA authors!

Lunch is available from The Gilded Tomato, rocket fine street food, La Creperie, Like No Udder, and Erms Cupcakes parked on our campus.

You may bring up to three books to be signed. Only books by this year’s authors and illustrators may be brought into the festival.
