THE RHODE ISLAND FESTIVAL OF
CHILDREN’S BOOKS & AUTHORS 2021
GOING VIRTUAL BUT STAYING LOCAL
Author talks will occur virtually during the school day to encourage classroom, library and learning pod attendance.
If you would like to purchase a signed copy of any of the books featured in the Festival they are available at Barrington Books in Barrington RI.
