Children's Book FEStival with
Lauren Castillo and Jonathan Bean!
Saturday, October 14th | 10am - 12pm
Join us at the Midtown Scholar for a morning packed with fun activities for all the little bookworms in your family! We're celebrating the book launch for award-winning children's illustrator Lauren Castillo's not-yet-released children's book on E.B. White, A Boy, A Mouse, and a Spider. This book will be available for purchase at this event ONLY, until its publication date of October 24th. Lauren will be joined by children's illustrator Jonathan Bean, illustrator of Real Cowboys. Alongside story times with these acclaimed illustrators, we're thrilled to welcome Gamut Theatre Group’s Popcorn Hat Players as they take the stage with a free interactive performance of a family-favorite: Aesop’s Fables, with showtime at 11:00am. The fun doesn't stop there — we'll have arts & crafts, dancing, and, of course, books for all ages! This program is sponsored by Harrisburg Academy.
Lauren Castillo and Jonathan Bean will be available to sign copies of their books during the event.
