This event is open to the public
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 School One and Goat Hill to offer short fiction writing workshops at 1 and 3 pm. These workshops are offered as part of Write Rhode Island, a short fiction competition for RI students in grades 7-12.
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.
