How to Reach the Hudson Children’s Book Festival

It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that, in conjunction with our superintendent of schools, we have made the decision to cancel the 2021 Hudson Children’s Book Festival. It is the highlight of our year, but with the ongoing pandemic, the health and safety of all those who join us is our top priority, and we feel it is in the best interest of all those involved to cancel. We look forward to returning on May 7, 2022! Stay safe and healthy!
