Bellport & Brookhaven Children's Book Festival 2015

Updated: Mar 2, 2020

UK's recent flurry of creative and literary festivals - think Hay, Womad, Green Man, or Port Eliot - makes me twitch with envy. Who doesn't love tramping around muddy fields covered in glitter? Or making your own Mad Hatter hat? Or joining awesome authors at read-a-longs? Or creating a one-minute-poem while in line for fancy food trucks. Yes, I want some of that! So last summer, 2015, I brought some of this spirt to our local beach town in New York. Bellport residents were intrigued. On a summer afternoon in 2015, throngs of children turned up for our used-book exchange, garden games, homemade lemonade, writing and illustrating workshops, and interative storytime with our favorite celebrities. As you can see, we had a wild time.

Stay tuned for the 2nd Annual gathering this summer...

Authors and illustrators came from out of town.
