Celebrate Community, Diversity & Storytelling at the Adirondack Family Book Festival

Come out to the John Brown Farm for the second annual Adirondack Family Book Festival!

On Saturday, August 19th, from 9:30am-4pm, join in the fun at the John Brown Farm in Lake Placid. Held outdoors and under tents, the Adirondack Family Book Festival is free and open to all.

Discover the sprawling John Brown Farm State Historic Site property while exploring children’s literature, middle grade books, and Young Adult titles through read-alouds, author led talks and workshops. Don’t miss the hands-on activities, too!

Newbery and Caldecott honorees, New York Times bestsellers, and authors and artists from diverse backgrounds will meet with fans of all ages throughout the day. Adirondack authors include Kate Messner, Maxwell Eaton, and Amy Guglielmo. For a full list of authors and illustrators, and up-to-date schedule, visit the festival’s website.
