Community Support

KEEP THE AUTHOR FESTIVAL AFLOAT!

This October, 25 authors and illustrators will come to Humboldt from throughout California, Oregon, Washington, Oklahoma, Arizona, Maryland, Colorado and Massachusetts.
They will travel to 60 Humboldt County schools, talk about themselves and their work to thousands of school children, and spend a day at a public autographing session in the Main Library in Eureka, where their books can be purchased.On behalf of the Author Festival Committee, students, children, parents, teachers, librarians, and other Humboldt book-lovers.  We thank our authors and our festival supporters.

The festival is paid for in part by a book sale and author signing event held at our Humboldt County Library in Eureka for the general public. We also receive financial help from Friends of the Redwood Libraries and the Humboldt Area Foundation. Each year expenses have increased, creating a funding challenge. We realized that we really had not reached out to our community for support. Now we are offering an avenue for the community to give a financial helping hand so that the Children’s Author Festival will continue to enrich the lives of our children.
