This is the event of the season for all children's book and young author-loving Oaklanders! 

We will be celebrating the publication of not one, but EIGHT newly illustrated and beautifully bound children's books written by our amazing eight young writers who participated in our Spring Break Children's Book Writing Camp. Come meet our young authors and their illustrators, buy their books, get them signed, hear them read (and roar) alongside some of our favorite local children's book authors. 

The list of participating booksellers is below. If you'd like to participate in this fair as an author or bookseller email Tabling is free!

Our young authors will be reading from and selling:
