This year’s headline event was Actor/Comedian Shawn Wayans who appeared on the Mainstage and took photos with fans afterwards.
Children at the Illustrator’s stage learned how to draw a monster with A. J. Cosmo, author and illustrator of The Monster That Ate My Socks.
Both Scholastic Book Fairs and Mrs. Nelson’s Book Fair Company sold books at a discount. It was a good opportunity to compare both vendors for planning your next book fair.
You can look for news on next year’s event by following Orange County Children’s Book Festival on Facebook or checking out their website. The Festival is free to the public and even includes free parking!
