Children’s book-related events are always popular at the BookFest

I just checked the weather and Sunday September 9 is predicted to be in the low 70s and sunny. It’s a perfect day to get the kids out of the house and the 10th Kerrytown BookFest is a wonderful way to celebrate the literary arts. The BookFest has seven workshops that were designed with children in mind. There will a drawing workshop by children’s author and illustrator Ruth McNally Barshaw. It will be based on her popular Ellie McDoodle series. Barshaw is shown above.

Deborah Diesen, award-winning children’s author of “The Pout Pout Fish” will lead a reading and sing-a-long for children.
