About the Book Festival

The Princeton Children’s Book Festival is an annual event each September at the Princeton Public Library and the Albert E. Hinds Memorial Plaza.

Our community is one that loves the library and loves books. The Princeton Children’s Book Festival is a celebration of this pairing. This well-attended event continues to grow yearly and promises something for everyone. Here, you may meet your favorite author or illustrator, listen to them discuss their work, have a book autographed, or just have the opportunity to talk to them about their inspirations.

The 2017 Festival poster was created by Brian Biggs, author and/or illustrator of many books, including his “Everything Goes” series, the “Frank Einstein” series by Jon Scieszka, and “Noisy Night” by Mac Barnett (2017). The Festival artwork draws inspiration from Brian’s new “Tinyville Town” series.

This is a free, rain-or-shine event that offers many additional fun activities throughout the afternoon. The Princeton Children’s Book Festival is an event that should not be missed.

The 2017 Princeton Children’s Book Festival is made possible by a partnership with jaZams of Princeton.
