The 2018 Warwick Children’s Book Festival will be held on Saturday, October 6 from 11am-4pm on Railroad Avenue. (Rain location: Warwick Valley Middle School – 225 West Street, Warwick.) Admission is free and the Festival is open to all the young at heart. Join fellow readers to celebrate children’s literacy, share a love of the written word, discover new books, talk with those who create them, and have your book purchases autographed. Nearly 2,000 visitors attended the Festival in 2017. The Festival will again bring the community and visitors together in the heart of the Village of Warwick, surrounded by charming shops, galleries, and family-friendly cafes, and close to apple orchards and family farms.
The Hudson Children’s Book Festival, established in 2009, strives to create, sustain, and nurture a culture of literacy in partnership with our community and schools. This free, public event fosters a love of reading as families meet and greet world-class creators of books for children of all ages.
Attendees will get the chance to meet dynamic authors of young adult literature first at an author panel and then in smaller breakout sessions afterward. The authors attending this year are Arvin Ahmadi, Patty Blount, Sarah Beth Durst, Amy Giles, Jessie Janowitz, George O'Connor, Eliot Schrefer and Kara Thomas. Books will be available for purchase with a chance to have them signed at the end of the day.
