About This Festival
From the Organizer
The Children's Literature Festival at the University of Central Missouri will be celebrating its 50th year from March 18-20 in 2018. Thousands of Missouri schoolchildren in grades 3-10 attend this annual event to hear nationally recognized children’s authors and illustrators speak about their work. We welcome anyone with an interest in children’s literature to join us, whether they are individuals, families, school groups, or homeschoolers!
