We bring some of the biggest names in children’s lit to our free outdoor stages and lawns for unforgettable encounters with the Bay Area’s young people. This year, teens from local schools will once again be interviewing their favorite middle-grade authors on our free outdoor Young Readers Stage. We’re also excited to once again host a live taping of the Book Club for Kids podcast, featuring middle-schoolers interviewing one of their much loved middle-grade authors.
The little ones will be delighted by interactive sessions with beloved picture-book authors and illustrators on the Young Readers Stage. They’ll gather round for our famous StoryTime Circle to hear authors and illustrators read their books aloud in an intimate setting. All this goodness plays out in the midst of our free, joyful Outdoor Fair, a feast for kids’ souls, eyes, and ears, full of live performances, special programs, and creative stations.
