Win Tickets: Fairytale Town Giving Away Prize Bundle in Celebration of the 17th Annual ScholarShare Book Festival

September 11, 2017

One of Fairytale Town’s signature events is coming up this next weekend. The 17th Annual ScholarShare Children’s Book Festival will feature New York Times Best-Selling Author and Caldecott award-winner Lindsay Mattick, author of Finding Winnie, the true story of World War I Canadian Soldier Harry Coleburn who rescued a baby bear as he headed overseas to war. He named the bear Winnie, and that bear became the model for one of the best-loved children’s book series of all time, Winnie-the-Pooh. The author is Coleburn’s great-great granddaughter. Lindsay, along with several other authors and illustrators, will be available for book signings.

The FREE, two-day festival is sponsored by ScholarShare College Savings Plan and will include live readings, storytelling performances, live music, hands-on literacy activities and a book fair. Here’s the full lineup of authors and illustrators who will be present during the weekend festival:

    we are most looking forward to Sandy Lynne Holman • We All Have A Heritage • Sun 2 PM
    We all Have A Heritage celebrates the things we have in common and our beautiful differences. Everyone has a heritage that should be celebrated and honored. Come travel the world with Montsho.

    It is important we all learn, celebrate and honor our heritage with pride so we can pass it along to future generations to come.

    My kids would most likley like to meet JaNay Brown-Wood. Her book Grandma’s Tiny House: A Counting Story fits our Gramma’s house perfect. My girls have a special bond with Gramma and can relate to the story.
