Author Festival

Every other year when Author Fest comes to Belle Aire, your child will get the chance to meet and talk with a published children’s author or illustrator! They will speak to classes about their books and about being an author. This is an amazing opportunity to meet a REAL author in a small group setting. Teachers and classes will be preparing for these visits by discussing the authors and reading their books.

Authors will be coming to your child’s classroom February 19th-21st, 2020 to share their experiences.

This year’s authors are: Jacob Grant, Natalie Rompella, Bibi Belford and Suzanne Slade.

Each year a book signing opportunity is held at the Downers Grove Public Library during Author Fest. This year’s event will be Friday February 21st. Doors open at 6:15, authors arrive at 6:30 and doors close at 8pm. Books will be on sale beginning Feb 9th at Anderson’s Bookshop with 20% of the proceeds going back to fund future Author Fest visits.  See flyer for more information
