Sheboygan Children's Book Festival

Wisconsin’s only children’s book festival is a free, fun celebration of books and reading for kids, teens, families, and book lovers of all ages. Plans are underway for October 10-12, 2014!

2014 Festival Theme: Feed Your Imagination
The 5th annual Sheboygan Children’s Book Festival will highlight imagination and inspiration in books for children and teens.

School Visits
We work with area schools to arrange visits by festival authors and illustrators. Is your school interested in hosting an author/illustrator on Friday, October 10, 2014? Contact us! We'd love to talk with you about how your students can experience the excitement of a personal visit by an acclaimed children's book author/illustrator.
