Here's a unique opportunity to meet a dozen nationally acclaimed authors and illustrators, including Tom Angleberger ("The Strange Case of Origami Yoda" series), Pam Munoz Ryan ("Esperanza Rising," "The Dreamer," and others), Gary Schmidt ("The Wednesday Wars," "Okay For Now," and others) and many more. At the RI Festival of Children's Books & Authors, each author will participate in a 30-minute presentation discussing his or her work, life and philosophy. Between talks, you can participate in bookmaking crafts -- perfect for the young and upcoming artist. Enjoy an exhibit provided by the Providence Athenaeum of antique children’s books and books that inspired the authors and illustrators. In addition, Justin Roberts, an "all-star" of the family music scene, will be on hand to rock the festival. Of course, books will be available to purchase, and you may also bring up to three to be signed (only books by this year’s authors and illustrators may be brought into the festival.) Read on! Sat. Oct. 13, 9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. $5 per person (available at the door). RI Festival of Children's Book Authors, Lincoln School, 301 Butler Ave., Providence, RI.
