The 2019 Youth Lit Fest is a day of workshops and presentations by award winning authors and illustrators. There will also be a publishing representative of books for children and teens. All ages are welcome, whether you love books for children and teens or hope to illustrate or write them. A Caldecott Medal winner and a Newbery Honor winner are two of the nine presenters at this full day of celebrating the art of writing and illustrating books for children and teens. Those who want to get published and those who love books for youth age 5-17 are invited to listen and learn from some of the best in the youth literature field. It’s free! Lunch is on your own.
