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 Sheboygan Children's Book Festival 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.
