Princeton Children’s Book Festival Returns October 8

The beloved Princeton Children’s Book Festival returns on Saturday, October 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Princeton Public Library and Hinds Plaza. This largely outdoor, in-person event brings together some of the most popular children’s book authors and illustrators, giving families the opportunity to meet their children’s favorite storybook creators. Book sales for the event will be available from jaZams in downtown Princeton. Authors and illustrators will be available to sign personalized copies and describe some of the details and inspirations behind their books. 

This year’s featured artwork is created by Patrick McDonnell, the creator of the animal-friendly comic strip MUTTS, which has received numerous awards internationally for both comic book excellence and its themes of animal protection. McDonnell also happens to reside locally and MUTTS is currently under agreement with Disney for a feature-length animation.
