The Connecticut Children's Book Fair: Celebrating Children and the Books They Read

Thomas J. Dodd Research Center Gallery
Curator: Terri Goldich

Since 1992, the annual Connecticut Children's Book Fair has brought together prominent children's book authors and illustrators and the general public to foster the enjoyment of children's literature. Over the years, 162 authors and illustrators have made presentations and autographed books for book fair attendees. The year's fair, sponsored as always by the Northeast Children's Literature Collection in the Dodd Research Center and the UConn Co-op, will occur on November 10-11.

Works by great names in the field of children's literature are displayed in this exhibit. Included among them are: James Marshall, creator of George and Martha and The Stupids, Joanne Cole, author of the Magic School Bus series, Walter Wick, creator of the I Spy books, and Pegi Deitz Shea, author of Ten Mice for Tet! and Tangled Threads. One piece by each of the 162 book fair participants will provide an overview of the first 15 years of the Connecticut Children's Book Fair, and celebrate one of the country's few remaining children's book fairs that is still free and open to the public.
