The Chappaqua Children's Book Festival will bring together more than 80 children's book authors and illustrators this October.
The first festival will be dedicated to the memory of Jean Craighead George, author of Julie of The Wolves and a former Chappaqua resident. “It is important for us to honor such a prolific and important Chappaqua writer for our first children's book festival,” said Greenburg in the press release. “At the festival, we will be displaying many of her books, which express her love and concern for the environment and all living things.”
Robert Bell Middle School is located at 108 Allen Place directly across from the Chappaqua train station. For more information visit ccbfestival.org.
