We are Readers. We are Authors. And we are committed to making reading fun and accessible to everyone.
The planning team has a dual mission to accomplish for the first RCLF in 2015:
To celebrate the written word and storytelling in its many forms with a fun-filled festival featuring engaging panels, bestselling authors, and entertainment.
To bring passionate and experienced speakers and educators for a program focused on overcoming the barriers to reading and promoting literacy as crucial for improving comprehension in all fields.
This multi-genre exhibition is taking over the Von Braun Center’s sprawling South Hall. You’ll find the authors (except the Special Guests), publishers, and other vendors as well as the strolling entertainment, inflatables, reading nooks, and the festival food here. We’ve set aside a Ballroom for the main events (including VIP signings) and meeting rooms for panels and workshops. We’re selling booths and tables now through our registration page, so be sure to keep checking as we add new authors and vendors to the event!
