About the Book Festival

The Princeton Children’s Book Festival is an annual event held each September at the Princeton Public Library and the Albert E. Hinds Memorial Plaza.

Our community loves the library and loves books. This autumn event is now a town classic and still continues to grow yearly. The book festival promises something for everyone. You may meet your favorite author or illustrator, listen to them discuss their work, have a book autographed, or just have the opportunity to talk to them about their inspiration.

The 2018 Festival poster was created by Angela Dominguez, author and/or illustrator of many books, including 2014 Pura Belpré Honor-winning Maria Had a Little Llama and 2016 Pura Belpré Honor-winning Mango, Abuela, and Me (written by Meg Medina).

This is a free, rain-or-shine event that offers many additional fun activities throughout the afternoon.

Please contact us for more information.


The Princeton Children’s Book Festival is made possible by our partnership with jaZams of Princeton.
