Live Performers at the 2017 Book Festival

Over the past 9 years, the Hudson Children’s Book Festival has hosted several performances on festival day. We have had musical performances by Aaron Nigel Smith and John Farrell who include all children in their shows. We’ve hosted Walter Dean Myers as a keynote speaker who joined us while he served as the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. We’ve also had Steve “The Dirtmeister” Tomecek who has put on amazing science shows for us. Come see who we have coming at this years festival!
