FOLD Kids Book Fest 2021

Hosted by The Festival of Literary Diversity (FOLD)

The Festival of Literary Diversity (FOLD) expanded to include a book festival exclusively for kids and educators in 2019. The festival includes sessions and workshops for kids, educators, and classes to participate in live from November 4-7 or on-demand until December 7, 2021.

Expanding on the success of the Festival of Literary Diversity — a literary festival which began in 2016 and celebrates a diverse array of authors and stories in Brampton, Ontario, Canada — FOLD Kids Book Fest emerged in 2019 to celebrate authors and illustrators of children’s literature. 

FOLD Kids Book Fest includes a fantastic array of children’s book authors and illustrators appearing at engaging events specifically designed for kids and teens. Alongside events designed to entertain and engage young people, the festival includes panels and workshops for parents and educators. It also includes opportunities for adult writers of children’s literature to develop their craft through writing workshops featuring the festival’s incredible lineup of authors. 

The 2021 festival will take place virtually from November 4-7. All virtual events will be available to passholders until December 7. 

Registration opens on October 14.
