5/30: Kids Author Carnival

Inspired by the Teen Author Carnival, the Kids Author Carnival is a huge middle grade extravaganza celebrating middle grade books, authors, and readers. Activities, games, Q&A sessions, and giveaways will be followed by a book sale and signing.

The goal of the KAC is to provide an opportunity for young readers to interact with authors up close and personal in a fun, party-like atmosphere. This is a unique event, catered heavily toward actual middle grade-aged readers. Instead of an event featuring conventional, long-form Q&A panels, the KAC will usher attendees through shorter, interactive stations in which authors will cut loose and play games, answer questions, and lead kids through miniature writing exercises.

All ages are welcome and encouraged to attend! But please note that the kids will take center stage at this particular event!

Saturday, May 30, 2014 from 6pm to 8:30pm at the Jefferson Market Library. Doors open at 5:30pm. This is an indoor event!

Saturday, May 30, 2015 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
