April 28 and 29, 2017 at Central Library
The Rabbit hOle is partnering with the Kansas City Public Library and the Crossroads Academy to launch an annual children’s literature festival in downtown Kansas City that will feature award-winning authors and illustrators from around the country!
The two-day event - "LitFest KC" - 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, and Nina Crews - with four more author/illustrators pending!
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.
Conference Day brochures and registration will be available in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned for this and info on our VIP Author event and book signing.
