The 2017 Humboldt County Children’s Author Festival kicks off at Eureka Books on Saturday, September 2 from 6 pm to 9 pm during Arts Alive. Every two years the Author Fest brings dozens of children’s book authors and illustrator to local schools to promote reading. Eureka Books will have a display of books from all the authors in the Festival. Volunteers from the Festival will be on hand to help children select appropriate titles as parents are encouraged to pick up copies of books ahead of the Festival. Also look out for local children’s authors and kid friendly snacks!
