Once Upon A Book Fest @ the Ashland Public Library

Saturday, May 14, 2022

Once Upon A BookFest... is a one of its kind book festival devoted to the kids, tweens, teens, and their families. We'll be hosting authors and illustrators whose books you've loved or that you'll love discovering! The day will be spent in workshops, meeting the authors, and hanging out with fellow book lovers. It's going to be magical!

We are thrilled to welcome authors Nandini Bajpai, LJ-Baptiste, Ashlander Jonathan Follett, Josh Funk, Ashlander Daphne Garcia, Jannie Ho, Kelly Light, Lois McAuliffe (our very own children's librarian!), Debbi Michiko Florence, Mark Parisi, Ganesh and Smitha Ramachandran, and Tak Toyoshima to Ashland for our First Annual Once Upon A BookFest Children's Book Festival! 

 We'll have a day full of hands-on workshops, author presentations, book selling and signing, food trucks and so much more! We hope you can join us for this very special day. Learn more about the festival, the schedule, food options, sponsors and more on the FEST WEBSITE

Please register so we know how many chairs to put out, how many markers to buy, and how much food to have on hand.
