The 6th annual Children's Festival of the Book welcomes the talented and prolific illustrator Henry Cole and Helena-native author Maile Meloy. Sit in on engaging presentations by each, a panel discussion by local authors, a writing workshop, kids crafts and more! Maile is new to the young adult genre after being an award-winning writer for adults. Her new book The Apprentice follows the most-engaging tale The Apothecary. Henry has illustrated many favorites, including I Know a Wee Piggy, A Nest for Celeste, the Katy Duck books, and lots more. His new book Unspoken is a beautifully illustrated story about the Underground Railroad -- all told through Henry's pictures. Sponsored by the Library Foundation, First Security Bank, The Country Bookshelf and Humanities Montana. Books will be for sale and book signings are scheduled.
