Multicultural Children's Book Festival
The Kennedy Center invites all children, parents, and educators to the thirteenth anniversary year of the annual free Multicultural Children's Book Festival and to celebrate Family Literacy Day in November 2009, in the Atrium, Galleries, Theater Lab, and Millennium Stage of the Kennedy Center. Books come to life in this afternoon-long series of readings by authors, illustrators, and guest celebrities; book signings; and other interactive performances and events.
The festival is a project of the Kennedy Center Education Department. The event attracts more than 7,000 people who are able to find many new volumes for their school and family libraries among the hundreds of collected and displayed books. More than 400 titles and multiple copies of story books, picture books, fairy tales, biographies, historical perspectives, novels, specialty books written for toddlers through teens, and a special selection of performing arts books will be available for purchase.
The subjects of these books are the lives, cultures, and stories of African, African American, Asian, Arab, Arabian, Caribbean, Latino, and Native American peoples. Free bookmarks and other small gifts will be distributed while supplies last. A portion of the book sale proceeds will benefit the Kennedy Center education programs.
