Since the Festival began in 2000, more than 100,000 students from kindergarten to grade 12 have had the chance to interact with Festival authors. Each year Festival authors participate in schools; they read from their works, conduct workshops, provide insight into the writing life and inspire students to read, write and create their own works.
