Children’s Authors at Southern Festival of Books
It is always exciting to meet children’s authors and hear about how and why they create literature for our youngest readers. From October 11th – 13th a number of gifted authors will be in Nashville for the Southern Festival of Books.
Featured authors will be: Caldecott winners Keven Henkes (Kitten’s First Full Moon) and husband and wife team, Phillip and Erin Stead (A Sick Day for Amos McGee); reliable favorites like Daniel Kirk (Library Mouse) and Andrea Beaty (Iggy Peck, Architect); and new picture books by award-winning songstress Janis Ian (The Tiny Mouse), Drew Daywalt (The Day the Crayons Quit), Elizabeth Dulemba (Lula’s Brew), Susan Verde (The Museum) and Jessica Young (My Blue is Happy).
Children’s author sessions take place on Saturday, Oct 12th and Sunday, Oct 13th! For more information about the Southern Festival of Books, go to the Humanities Tennessee website.
