This year, like so many other book festivals, the 29th African American Children’s Book Fair will be virtual. It’s a single day event: Saturday, February 6, 2021, from 10:15 am – 5:45 pm EST.
The festival features an amazing lineup of speakers, including Tracey Baptiste, Leah Henderson, illustrator/writer Bryan Collier, and Torrey Maldonado.
The African American Children’s Book Fair is one of the oldest and largest single-day events for African-American children’s books in the country and is hosted by the African American Children’s Book Project (AACBP). The AACBP, a non-profit organization, was created in 1992 to promote and preserve children’s literature written by or about African Americans.
