The Youth Literature Festival brings award-winning authors of youth literature to area schools in a three-day event, culminating in a Community Day Celebration with author panels, activities for kids, and performances to share with the whole family. A bi-annual event, the Festival is provided without cost to participants or school districts thanks to volunteers and generous sponsors.
Community Day Celebration
Champaign-Urbana and surrounding area families and community members are invited to celebrate youth literature at the Festival’s Community Day Celebration, a free event, open to the public.
Author readings, book signings, puppet shows, live music, art displays, and a variety of hands-on activities for children will all be part of the fun!
