FOLD Kids Bookfest will host virtual events from November 4-7, 2021 on a brand new virtual platform that allows participants to chat with authors and industry professionals and to participate in our inaugural virtual scavenger hunt.
The 20+ events include workshops, story times, and conversations for children of all ages, as well as writers, families, and educators. Live sessions will take place during the school day, in the evenings, and over the weekend Nov 4-7. After the sessions air live, all sessions will remain available on-demand to passholders until December 7.
The year’s festival includes storytelling events in different languages, interactive events like the Illustrator Battle, and workshops like Comic Book Writing with Rosena Fung. The 2021 festival will include returning storytellers, like Njacko Backo, Cherie Dimaline (The Marrow Thieves) and David Alexander Robertson (The Barren Grounds), as well as first-time superstars such as Khodi Dill, Karleen Pendleton Jiménez, and Xiran Jay Zhao.
The complete schedule will be released when registration opens on Tuesday, October 14 at 11:00am ET.
