FESTIVAL THEME: Twists & turns

The shortest distance between two points might well be a straight line, but a winding road can be so much more interesting!

The 2017 SCTBF will explore journeys of discovery and reveal some surprising twists and turns of stories, and of the the paths taken by the talented authors and illustrators who create them. 

Join us! No registration is needed to attend, and thanks to the support of our generous sponsors, the festival is free and open to the public.

Full schedule of events will be announced soon.

Festival Testimonials

It is awesome to get to meet these authors!
...I loved seeing how the artist does her drawing because I want to be an artist when I'm older.
I think I’m going to cry! (Steven Kellogg) was so nice, and he is a good drawer and writer. (2nd grade student)
