As a family-oriented festival, we're planning to celebrate storytelling in all forms with bestselling and popular authors, and to help make reading accessible to all with programs targeting the removal of barriers to reading such as poverty, learning disabilities, and language. We’ll do this by gathering New York Times bestselling authors alongside independent and small press in a festive atmosphere with games, prizes, workshops, book signings and readings, and inspirational speakers.
