COVID 19 Update

Dear Festival Guests,

As you know, we are so excited about launching the Central Maine Children’s Book Festival to bring authors, illustrators, and readers together in this part of northern New England. This event is founded as much upon our love of community as it is our love of children’s books, so we are paying close attention to the COVID-19 situation in Maine, New England, and around the country. We are taking our cues from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as from other organizations around Maine.

Due to the current situation, we have decided to postpone this event until September. A new date will be announced.

We recognize this is a stressful situation. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. We can be reached at mainebookfest [at] gmail [dot] com.

Take care of yourselves and each other.
