Don’t miss the BKBF Children’s Day (ages 2-11) in MetroTech Commons. Children’s Day celebrates the power of storytelling and the importance of literature in children’s lives. On September 16th, bring the kids and enjoy readings, art projects, and workshops, as children's and middle-grade authors present new and beloved children’s books. Families will have a fun-filled day outdoors meeting costumed characters, joining musical performances, and browsing the Children’s Marketplace of booksellers.
Children’s Day authors include: Laurie Berkner, Alexandra Bracken, Angela Dominguez, Sharon Draper, Maira Kalman, Eric Morse, George O’Connor, Javaka Steptoe, Jacqueline Woodson, and Gene Luen Yang, and many more.
The BKBF Festival Day on September 17 and Children’s Day on September 16 are both free and open to the public. Admission for all of our author events are not ticketed and is on a first come, first serve basis. We do recommend arriving early for more popular talks.
