Organized Group Visits to the Festival
Through partnerships with non-profit organizations such as SAReads, Girls, Inc., Boys and Girls Club, Divas, Inc., and others, over 400 kids from underserved areas participate in this special program of the Festival. The kids are transported to the Festival where they take part in the activities, hear author presentations, and receive a Festival author’s book and a Festival T-shirt.
If you plan to organize a large group of students or kids to attend the Book Festival at the Central Library and Southwest School of Art please contact Jennifer Maestas. We will assist you with bus parking and can answer any other questions. We recommend that students bring their own lunch. There will also be food trucks on site.
If you are bringing a smaller group of kids to the Festival, you do not need to let us know. Due to growing expenses, we are no longer able to provide T-shirts to all of the student groups that come to the Festival.
