Children and teens can revel in graphic novels and comics by participating in a school of comics on Friday as well as “presentations over the weekend by renowned graphic novelists and illustrators.”
The Festival of Authors is the crowning event of the fair with more than 350 authors reading and discussing their work. Latin-American literature will also be celebrated by authors on hand who will participate in the IberoAmerican Authors Program.
Over 250 publishers and booksellers will be present to display and sell books, including the ‘antiquarians’ who dazzle attendees with historic autographed first editions, original manuscripts and a variety of collectibles.
The Street Fair opens Saturday morning at 9 a.m. and the first presentations begin at 10 a.m. It is highly recommended that you arrive early to allow for traffic and not miss your desired presentation due to a sell-out.
