I Hotel and Conference Center
The Youth Literature Festival celebrates the value of literature in the lives of youth by bringing together nationally known authors, illustrators, poets, and storytellers. These individuals share their stories, their craft, and their enthusiasm for books with children and teens.
The Festival consists of two primary components – author and illustrator visits to area schools on March 28-29 and a Community Day at the I-Hotel on March 30. The Community Day is a celebration free to the public with author presentations, hands-on activities, performances, puppetry, music, storytelling, and much more.
