It’s time for the 24th Annual Authors Festival at the Huntington Beach Central Library! The free event will take place on Tuesday, January 31, 2012 from 2:30-4:30pm. It’s a great opportunity for children to meet a variety of authors and illustrators and have their books autographed. This year’s visiting authors include Caroline Arnold, Rene Colato Lainez, Chris Epting, Debra Garfinkle, Alison Jackson, Laura Lacamara, Carolyn Marsden, Joseph Moreus, Eileen Morris, Lori Polydorros, Candace Ryan, Antonio Sacre, Deborah Turner, Gretchen Woelfle and Dawne Wynne. The participating authors’ books will be available for sale.
At 3:45 pm, the awards ceremony for the winners of the “Imagine you lived in the Library” writing and illustrating contest, will be held at the Tabby Theater. The Authors Festival is made possible by the Friends of the Children’s Library, the Huntington Beach Public Library, the Sand Scribes children’s writing group and a grant from the Employees’ Fund of Boeing Corporation.
