A MESSAGE FROM OUR DIRECTORS
These are trying times for everyone. We hope by attending the RCBF’s virtual book festival, Kids’ Books ROC, you and your children will immerse yourselves in the world of books for a day. Presentations for all ages will take place throughout the day with many of your favorite local and guest authors.
Panels of authors and illustrators will discuss how they create their picture books, chapter books, and novels, and many other topics. For our younger audience, the popular Read to Me Corner sessions will showcase authors and illustrators reading their picture books. One session will even offer sing-alongs!
Signed books will be available for purchase throughout the event on-line or in-store at Lift Bridge Book Shop. Please help us spread the word to friends and family across the nation so they can join in the fun. You can register here for our crowdcast event as the date gets closer. We hope to see you on November 6th!
