The Avon Free Public Library in Avon, Connecticut is running its sixth Local Author Festival this summer. AFPL has featured children's authors and illustrators other years. The first year of the festival, for instance. This year, though, it looks as if no children's or YA authors or illustrators are taking part.
There's a good line-up of other people, though. Bookstores cut back on their author offerings during the summer. Recently, libraries like Avon's have been picking up the slack. Well done.
I've only been to the Avon Free Public Library for the Author Festival. I'm hoping to make a stop this summer to scope the place out during regular business hours. I've heard good things about the Children's Room.
