The Children’s Literature Connection and the English Department of Hudson Valley Community College present The Fall Festival of Books, Saturday October 20 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, at HVCC Bulmer Telecommunications Center, 80 Vandenburgh Avenue, Troy.
The Fall Festival of Books is C.L.C.’s 4th annual greeting/selling/autographing celebration of children’s literature. School and public librarians, educators and the general public are invited to meet authors and illustrators, buy their books and chat as books are autographed. Professionals are encouraged to speak with authors about school visits, and hear about exciting upcoming projects. It’s a great time to think about unique holiday gifts too.
This year, for the first time, the authors will have the opportunity to showcase their work via individual presentations. This year we are happy to announce that our authors will include:
Sylvie Kantorovitz (Wickstrom), Matt McElligott, Karen Beil, Kyra Teis, Alexandra Siy, Rose Kent, Eric Luper, Thomas Styles, Marlene Newman, Liza Frenette, Daniel Mahoney, Peter Marino, and Bob Hervey.
In addition, we are pleased to announce a fantastic door prize! Attendees qualify for a free author visit from award winning writer Jennifer Armstrong.
This is a free event, no registration is required. Free parking is available. Directions to HVCC’’s Bulmer Telecommunications Center are available here
This event is sponsored by the CLC and the HVCC English Department.
