Join us for the 4th Annual New Orleans Children’s Book Festival on November 15 & 16, 2013. This year, we’re kicking off the year of imagination in partnership with City Year! City Year will help keep the spirit of the New Orleans Children’s Book Festival alive all year long. The free festival features storytelling, live music, food, and fun activities for kids of all ages!

First Lady Cheryl Landrieu and Ruby Bridges both believe strongly in literacy and in the power of education. They also believe in the powerful effect that learning can have in bringing children together. This event affords children from all backgrounds the opportunity to get to know one another through the love of books and learning.

The festival offers unique opportunities for children and parents to interact with exceptional writers and storytellers and to enjoy an inspiring variety of book-related activities, exhibitions and demonstrations.

The food, fun, books, and stories are FREE!
