Chesapeake Children’s Book Festival Now Accepting Author/Illustrator Applications

Share

The Chesapeake Children’s Book Festival is now accepting applications from qualified authors and/or illustrators interested in participating in the 2018 festival.  The Third Annual Chesapeake Children’s Book Festival will feature 30 to 40 authors/illustrators.  Those with a new book out in 2017/18 will be given preference.

The Chesapeake Children’s Book Festival is sponsored by the Talbot County Free Library (and other partners), which will buy authors’ books through its traditional vendors.  Many of these vendors are restricted to buying traditionally published authors only.  Which means the festival cannot accept self-published or vanity press books.

In honor of the 200th anniversary of Frederick Douglass’s birth, the 2018 Chesapeake Children’s Book Festival will take place in conjunction with Talbot County’s Juneteenth celebrations.  Carole Boston Weatherford will be the featured author.  The festival welcomes applications from people of diverse backgrounds.  Authors/illustrators may apply to participate in the Third Annual Chesapeake Children’s Book Festival at: http://chesapeakechildrensbookfestival.com/Author-Info.html
