The Children's Literature Festival is an annual event that aims to connect people, especially schoolchildren and teens, with the folks behind the books they love.
Every year we offer a Sunday luncheon attended by the majority of our visiting authors and illustrators.
Award-winning author, Gary Schmidt will be the Gilbert-Sadler Speaker in 2020. This Speaker Series takes place during the Sunday Luncheon and is generously supported with a gift through the UCM Alumni Foundation by Becky Klein, the daughter of Philip Sadler, co-founder of our Festival. Please consider joining us for this special Sunday event! Authors are available after the luncheon to autograph books. Please note: reservations must be made in advance of this event.
