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! Enjoy an exhibit provided by the Providence Athenaeum of antique children’s books and books that inspired our authors and illustrators.

Lunch is available from The Gilded Tomato, rocket fine street foodLa CreperieLike No UdderCity Girl Cupcakes and New Harvest 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.
