Children's Book Week @ Eagle Harbor Books
As part of the longest-running national celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading, over 1,000 schools, libraries, and bookstores will celebrate Children’s Book Week from April 29 to May 5 from coast to coast in all 50 states.
This May marks the 100th anniversary of Children’s Book Week; the theme for this year’s celebration is Read Now • Read Forever. Kids and teens at Book Week events will receive a free 2019 Children’s Book Week activity poster designed by Yuyi Morales (while supplies last).
We are proud to be hosting the following event(s) in celebration of Children’s Book Week:
