KIDS | Rochester Children's Book Festival 

UPDATE: Elmo will be present at the Festival from 10 a.m. to noon, and WXXI's Beth Adams will be this year's celebrity reader.

The 19th Annual Rochester Children's Book Festival will take place on Saturday, November 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Monroe Community College (1000 East Henrietta Road). Young readers will have the chance to meet more than 40 children's book authors and illustrators including Nikki Grimes, Alyssa Capucilli, Jane Yolen, and James Howe.

Attending authors' books will be available for purchase, with the opportunity for kids to get them signed. Authors and illustrators will give readings and discussions of themes in their books such as bullying and developing characters, and will also offer seminars for kids interested in writing or illustration, and for adults on how to promote literacy and love of reading.

Admission to the event is free to all. Check out for a complete list of authors, activities, and more information.
