There were so many cool activities and authors, and the library itself was a spectacle to look at.
There are also tons of really cool authors doing readings there such as John Claude Bemis, R.L. Stine, and Kelly Starlings-Lyon.
There are also cool workshops, like a comic-making workshop, and a book-making workshop.
There were so many fun activities for kids of all ages, like making your own comic, or recreating a scene from your favorite book with Legos (I did Divergent!), and
finding out how literacy fits in with Math.
One of the coolest things I saw on the first day was the StoryUp! Aerialist group, who recreated some of our favorite fables and stories using aerial silks. Paperhand Puppet Intervention was there, too.
There are so many fun things to do at the Literary Festival for everyone in your family. Sadly I didn’t get to do all of things mentioned above because I was out of town part of Saturday, but those were some of the things they offered.
Move over DC (National Book Festival) — you’ve got competition! (and goooooo Wolfpack!)
Bonus: Our friends from our favorite bookstore, Quail Ridge Books & Music were there with a pop-up bookstore!
Oh, look at the time– I gotta get over to NC State for today’s activities! ~LitKid
Postscript from AKid@Heart: Who doesn’t love building with Legos? While LitKid made her cool Divergent scene, I decided to try to create a setting from my kids’ novel manuscript … the rooftop of the main characters’ city apartment building, complete with Tiki shelter (and gliders below), a garden and night-time lights. (Kids have no idea how basic Legos used to be!)
