Kid Lit Fest
January 11 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
Kids looking to meet a favorite author or discover a new one can stop by for the Library’s annual Kid Lit Fest. The event, which celebrates books and reading, features popular, award-winning, and noted Chicago-area authors who will meet and greet young readers. The event features other book-related fun, too. Kids can stop in a special photo booth and have their photo taken with a favorite children’s book cover, make a bookmark to take home, and catch local teachers reading aloud from their favorite books. Nationally-known family entertainer Chris Fascione will bring children’s stories to life at 10:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. Fascione’s free performances combine acting, storytelling, comedy, and juggling.
