Summer reading will come to life this year at the Cecil County Public Library 's Children's Book Festival. Instead of the usual event kick-off picnic this year, the library will focus on those who pen the books.
A slate of authors will be on hand to meet children face to face. Authors include JoAnn Dawson, Barbara Lockhart, Kevin McCloskey, John Miklos, Jr., Dianne K. Salerni, Kevin Sherry, David Teague, and Annette Whipple.
