Book Feast will feature renowned kid’s book authors and illustrators, who will lead dynamic presentations and workshops for kids of all ages. Featured authors include Brandon Mull, Ingrid Law, Avi, Sneed Collard, Janet Stevens, and Caroline Stutson! There will also be performances by hilarious storyteller, Bonnie Phipps, and the Buntport Theater Group. Special Skype visits from fabulous but far-away authors will include Dan Gutman and others!

Book Feast is brought to you by Bud Werner Library, Steamboat Springs School District, Steamboat Springs Art Council, and Off the Beaten Path Bookstore.
