About the Festival

Our festival’s mission is to bring together kids, parents, teachers and authors to celebrate the beauty of the written (and illustrated word) for the younger readers (and those of us that don’t want to stop reading good that remind us of our youth). Aaron’s Books is located in the heart of Central Pennsylvania. We are family owned and operated since opening in 2005. The store is named after Aaron, who is 12 years old.
Now in its 6th year- here are some pictures from previous festivals, featuring Sharon Robinson, Nick Bruel, Brian Biggs, Daniel Kirk, Tom Angleberger, Matt Phelan, Eric Wight, Josh Berk, Mitali Perkins and lots of other great writers for kids of all ages!
