RI Festival of Children's Books this Saturday

RI Children's Book Festival
RI Children's Book Festival.

This Saturday, October 16, is the Rhode Island Festival of Children's Books and Authors at the Lincoln School, 301 Butler Ave. in Providence. Tickets are available at the door, and are just $5 for the 9am-5:30pm event, which features panels, talks, and signings by some of the top names in children's literature, including Blue Balliett, Jules Feiffer, Kate Feiffer, Jack Gantos, Kazu Kibuishi, Helen Lester, David Macaulay, Mark Teague, Chris Van Allsburg, and Mo Willems.

Seriously, this is one of the most awesome, under-rated events in Rhode Island. They have amazing participants every year, and it's a small venue, so you have opportunities to talk with these amazing authors and illustrators.
