The Chappaqua Children’s Book Festival (CCBF) will take place on Saturday, October 2 from 10 am-4 pm at Chappaqua Train Station in Chappaqua, New York. This year, CCBF will limit the number of authors and illustrators in attendance for the sake of social distancing and safety for all. 74 of our renowned children’s book authors and illustrators will return to participate in the festival’s eighth annual event, www.ccbfestival.org/. Admission and parking are free and the event will be held rain or shine at the Chappaqua train station.
In its eighth year, the Festival, promoting community and literacy will have authors covering multiple genres and reading levels, author readings, illustrator Demos, Book Signings and books for sale. All guests above the age of two are required to wear masks.
The Chappaqua Children’s Book Festival is a grassroots, all-volunteer effort, with community members working together so that children and teens can be inspired by their favorite authors. The Festival gives kids and families a chance to meet and interact with the creators of their favorite characters to appreciate that there is a real person behind the art and words on the page.
