Kathleen’s Events

Humboldt County Children’s Author Festival
Oct 14 – Oct 17 all-day

The Humboldt County Children’s Author Festival began in 1975 with goals of bringing well-known, published authors to Humboldt County and enabling them to visit schools to talk with students about books and the business and craft of writing, and to reinforce the idea that people create books and that children and students can write as well as read.Begun as a one-time festival, its popularity with kids, parents, teachers, librarians, and the general public was such that the festival evolved into a biennial event.
