The Decatur Children’s Book Festival, presented by Little Shop of Stories, will be taking place May 3 – 5 in downtown Decatur. This awesome event will feature keynote speakers, exhibitors, and author appearances, and will take place at various locations alongside the Decatur Arts Festival.

“We are thrilled to host a festival that will encourage young readers to continue exploring the world of literature,” says Diana Capriola, co-owner of Little Shop of Stories. “We feel fortunate to have such great voices joining us and hope this will foster a lifelong love of reading.”

A keynote event will kick off the festival on Friday, May 3 at First Baptist Church of Decatur. Renowned authors Kate Dicamillo, LaDarrion Williams, and Rebecca Ross will be delivering keynote speeches and discussing their latest literary works throughout the festival.

The festival will continue May 4 and 5 at the Decatur Recreation Center and the Decatur Library. It will feature 25 exhibitors, including the Alliance Theatre, Barefoot Books, Picture Perfect Reads, The Wren’s Nest, and the Little Shop of Stories Summer Reading Program, just to name a few.
