More than 90 popular authors, who bring your favorite characters to life, are expected to participate. Most will be signing their books and reading excerpts. Bring your whole family for tons of fun, food, kid-friendly activities, entertainment and, of course, books!
The program, which is co-sponsored by the Chappaqua Children’s Book Festival (one of the largest children’s book festivals in the metropolitan region), will provide participants with the opportunity to learn about the history of the printing press, Horace Greeley’s New York Tribune, journal writing in the 19th century, and about Chappaqua’s many own children’s book authors. Program participants will have the opportunity to see one of Greeley’s actual type stands. Participants will also have the chance to use mini-printing presses to make their own book pages to take home.
This free program will be held at the Horace Greeley House (100 King St. Chappaqua, NY 10514) on Sunday, September 27, 2015 from 2 pm – 4pm. The program is recommended for children up to 10 years old.
Please call 914-238-4666 or email email@example.com to reserve your space in this program. Reservations are recommended; however, walk-ins are also welcome.
The Chappaqua Children’s Book Festival, established in 2013, is an annual “happening” every fall in the heart of Chappaqua. Our mission is to create, sustain, and nurture a culture of literacy in partnership with our community and schools. This free, public event fosters a love of reading as families meet and greet outstanding creators of books for children of all ages. www.ccbfestival.org
The site of the October 5th Chappaqua Children’s Book Festival is the centerpiece of downtown Chappaqua. Bell Middle School has a bit of an Ivy League feel (some have said Hogwarts-esque). It will be gorgeous on a beautiful fall day, surrounded by big oaks with kids dashing between author tables and families picnicking on the grass. Right across the street is the town gazebo where we’ll be featuring entertainment late in the afternoon. Be sure your calendars are marked!
