This historic day is designed for students, pre-K through 12 grades, targeting childhood literacy and creating a love for reading that empowers our children to lead. LEADERSHIP STARTS YOUNG! 

Festival attendees will participate in literacy workshops, meet and greet with young authors and poets, experience a live Black History wax museum and participate in a spelling bee.

YOUNG AUTHOR'S SHOWCASE: Young authors will have the chance to display and sell their literary work to hundreds of festival attendees. 

POETRY CAFE: Young poets may share their original work during our cafe with an audience of festival attendees.

SPELLING BEE: Young wordsmiths will hone their skills and demonstrate their love for reading during this culminating event of the day.

BLACK HISTORY LIVE WAX MUSEUM: Young thespians will bring historic icons to life on the stage and incite a love for our profoundly rich history.
