The second Santa Cruz Book Fair For Kids Of All Ages will be held at the Santa Cruz Public Library, 224 Church Street, in the Upstairs Meeting Room next to the Young Peoples Room, Sunday, April 28th from 1-3:30 p.m. This year eight local authors are joining Children’s Book Week, the national literacy initiative in celebrating it’s 100th anniversary. Children’s Book Week’s mission is “inspiring a love of reading in children and teens across America.”

The event is free and authors will read from their work, hold short Q & A sessions and autograph their books. Authors will read from their fiction and nonfiction picture books, middle grade, and young adult titles! These will be on sale and include picture books, middle grade fiction for eight to twelve-year-olds, and young adult fiction for teens. A portion of the proceeds from sales will go to the Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries.
