To better serve young readers and writers and to celebrate the incredible power of children’s literature, in 2019 the FOLD Foundation moved all of its kids programming to start a second festival in the fall.

The first FOLD Kids Book Fest – a festival dedicated to children’s literature – kicked off in September 2019 with authors Debbie Ridpath Ohi, Ruth Ohi, Rina Singh, Angelot Ndongmo, Hilary Leung, Kevin Sylvester, Njacko Backo and more.
