During this year's ABA Winter Institute in January, Missy Couhig, co-owner of the Conundrum Books & Puzzles in St. Francisville, La., attended the "Starting a Children's Book Festival" education session. From that experience, she was inspired to partner with the West Feliciana Parish Library to host the first annual West Feliciana Children’s Book Festival, which will take place on May 6, during Children's Book Week. Here's the festival's Facebook page.
"We are getting terrific response from authors; we will have author presentations, story times, school presentations, face painting, a sidewalk chalk art competition and of course book sales," Couhig said. "We are very excited about the event and want to spread the word!"
