April 10th-12th I’ll be an official guest at the Children’s Book Festival of Johnstown!
The three-day festival is free and is geared to children in grades Pre-K through 6. Designed to bring books alive in an impactful and lasting way, the festival features performances by nationally-known, award-winning authors, illustrators and storytellers. Named as one of four “Best of the Best” arts projects in Pennsylvania in 2013 by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the festival also includes lots of arts and crafts, live musical and theatrical performances, and new and used children’s books that people can purchase to build home libraries of their own. Every child walks away with a free age-appropriate book from First Book and winners of our bookmark contest take home a basket full of books. Other guests include Greg Pizzoli, Zachariah OHora, & Mark Weakland!
