Book Fest is an event held every year to celebrate reading and books. It started as an event for pre-school aged children, but has since evolved into an event perfect for pre-teens as well.
The theme this year is “Dream Big”. There will be games and activities, arts and crafts, music, magic shows and a live video chat session with Colonel Eileen Collins; the first woman to command a space shuttle.
There will also be members of law enforcement present to speak to the children.
This year’s event will take place Saturday, March 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Diven Elementary School.
