Sheboygan Children's Book Festival


This year we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the SCTBF and the power of books to transport us beyond our known world to explore other places, people, and ideas -- whether they be real or imaginary.


The Sheboygan Children & Teen’s Book Festival invites authors and illustrators of books for children and teens to submit proposals to present at the 10th annual Festival. The children’s and teen’s book festivals, presented by Sheboygan County Reads!, run concurrently and will take place in Sheboygan, WI from October 11 – 13, 2019.

Authors/illustrators or their publishers may submit proposals to be part of School Visit Friday on October 11, and/or to be part of the public Festival on Saturday, October 12 and/or Sunday, October 13, 2019. Presenters may apply for the children’s book festival, the teen book festival, or both.

Festival Testimonials

Wonderful selection of authors. Great presentations that work for many ages.
It is awesome to get to meet these authors!
Loved the experiences in the ARTery, loved the presentations about the craft of writing and publishing. Gorgeous venues and well-done festival. Well-staffed, very nice venues. Will come again next year from Minnesota – well worth it.
