The Rabbit hOle is working in association with the Kansas City Public Library and the Crossroads Academy to launch an annual children’s literature festival in downtown Kansas City. The first annual LitFestKC event is scheduled for April 28th and 29th, 2017.
This year’s presenters include our first National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature - Jon Scieszka, 2016 Caldecott winner Sophie Blackall, John Bemelmans Marciano, Nina Crews, Javaka Steptoe, and Brian Selznick - with more author/illustrators to be announced!
Patterned after the Reading Reptile’s storied literature festival of years past, LitFest KC will feature a Kids Day (Friday, April 28) for school groups and families, and an all-day Conference (Saturday, April 29) for educators, artists, and writers. Both days will be staged at the Central Library, located at 14 W. 10th St.
