The second official Annual Bar Harbor Kids Book Festival will be an awesome celebration of kids, authors, illustrators and books!


Join us October 21 and 22, 2016 in the amazing Maine island town of Bar Harbor for two full days of readings, activities, celebrations, workshops and panels. Saturdays events will be open to all ages and will focus on writing, reading and illustrating. 


The love of story has saved many people. Help us celebrate that love and share it with the kids of this island community! 


The Bar Harbor Kids Book Festival brings authors and illustrators to the Mount Desert Island community for two full days of school visits, public appearances, contests and interactions with both kids and adults. The Festival's goal is to bring a love of story to kids, inspiring better quality of life and higher literacy rates. From cops to firefighters to Rotarians and librarians, the entire community is supporting this effort to make sure our kids grow up loving stories and reading and writing and illustrating. Please join us on October 21 and 22, 2016.
