Farragut Arts Council announces Book Fest for Children Call for Authors

The Farragut Arts Council, in conjunction with the Town of Farragut and the Knox County Library Farragut Branch, is seeking local authors of children’s books to participate in the 11th annual Farragut Book Fest for Children on Saturday, April 7, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Founders Park at Campbell Station.

Book Fest offers an array of activities throughout the day, from storytelling to book signings to music to art activities. As a literary festival, reading and learning are the primary objectives of this free, family-friendly event. Children have the opportunity for one-on-one interaction with participating authors, discovering their books and characters while offering the authors the chance to promote and sell their books.

For a $10 fee, authors will be provided a 10 x 10 space at the event; authors will supply their own books, tables, chairs, decorations and signage. Authors can register and pay at www.townoffarragut.org/register by clicking the Programs tab (a nominal $0.06 convenience fee will be assessed) and at Farragut Town Hall (11408 Municipal Center Drive – second floor, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) beginning Monday, Jan. 22, through Friday, March 23.

Incorporated in 1980, the Town of Farragut has top schools, safe neighborhoods and high development standards, making it one of the best places to live in the Southeast.
