Book Fest

Postal carriers are not the only ones who persevere and deliver despite bad weather. Add children’s book authors and Town of Farragut officials to that list.

Cold temperatures and rain forced a venue change for the Town’s annual Book Fest, from Founder’s Park at Campbell Station to Farragut Town Hall, Saturday morning and early afternoon, April 7.

But authors, illustrators, young readers and their parents still flocked to the new location in droves.

Some children came dressed as their favorite book characters while others just appreciated meeting writers in a variety of genres, hearing them share books during a live story time, seeing the wonders of a local magician and enjoying a variety of crafts.

The traveling Bright Star Theatre also gave two performances that focused on famous writers, including most notably William Shakespeare.
