Charlotte Mecklenburg Library's free literary festival for children and their families. 

 

 

 

Book lovers of all ages are invited to EpicFest

EpicFest is an extraordinary, free literary festival that joyfully connects children, teens and families with books and the people who write them through activities that encourage a love of reading and learning. In its fifth year, EpicFest has become a wonderful family tradition.

Nationally-recognized children’s and young adult authors and illustrators will spend two days in Charlotte to share their latest books, experiences and passion for libraries with kids of all ages.

Authors and illustrators will visit select Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Friday, Nov. 8, 2019 to speak with students, and will headline a daylong literary festival at ImaginOn Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019.

 EpicFest is presented to the community by Wells Fargo, with community partner Read Charlotte, and with additional generous support from corporate citizens and individual sponsors.

EpicFest is presented to the community by Wells Fargo, with community partner Read Charlotte. It is made possible through the generous support of many more corporate citizens, foundations and individual sponsors. EpicFest was created to remember and honor Jim and Elizabeth (Libby) Preston’s passion for reading, and to encourage and instill a love of reading in children.
