Kendi, Téa Obreht, and a family-friendly Star Wars panel featuring Jason Fry, Chuck Wendig and the 501st Legion.

“This is our sixth year, and each year we’ve had bigger crowds,” says Festival Director Rachel Barry. “We’re also very fortunate to have the support of so many area educators who volunteer all year long on the festival from programming to marketing and beyond.”

Kicking off this year’s festival is a ticketed keynote event on Friday, Oct. 11 with New York Times best-selling author and former U.S. Attorney
