A MESSAGE FROM OUR DIRECTORS

We're beyond excited to get back to our in-person Rochester Children's Book Festival on November 5th at our fabulous new venue: Rochester Institute of Technology. Mark your calendars and join us for this fun, free celebration of literacy and learning. Presentations for all ages will take place in three different rooms every half hour. Our craft room will keep your kids entertained making book-related crafts. Best of all, your family can interact with around 50 authors and illustrators as they sign books for purchase. 

Stay tuned for more information.

See you November 5th! 

Vicki Schultz, Barbara Underhill, and Jim Chaize
