Savannah Children's Book Festival

2013 Savannah Children's Book Festival


The 10th Annual Savannah Children’s Book Festival is set for Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013, at Forsyth Park in Savannah. The 10th annual festival celebrates the joy of reading, the power of the written word and the magic of storytelling with children’s book authors and illustrators from around the country.

The free festival will also include dozens of authors and illustrators from throughout the Low Country and Southeast region, arts and crafts, an International Tent, costumed characters, a graphic/comics area, and a variety of food and entertainment. In addition, a book walk will be staged among the trees so families may enjoy a story together reading from one page to the next throughout the park.

The festival is presented by Live Oak Public Libraries and the City of Savannah. Major sponsors are the Live Oak Public Libraries Foundation and Gulfstream Aerospace.

Rain location for the event is the Savannah Civic Center. For more information, call (912)652-3600. For updates, keep checking and follow Live Oak Public Libraries on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
