If you’d like to be a participating author at the 2024 Rye Children’s Book Festival, our 2024 author application will be available on our website shortly. Please check back to apply.
The Rye Children’s Book Festival seeks to gather a diverse, inclusive group of talented emerging and established authors and illustrators whose works include books for the very young through young adult, in a variety of formats and genres.
Author/illustrator participation is by invitation only, and presents only works that are published by well-established, traditional commercial publishers.
Limited capacity precludes our accepting books that are self-published, or are published by a vanity/subsidy press, joint venture press or a print-on-demand service.
There is no fee to participate. The Festival does not reimburse travel expenses nor offer honoraria.
The 2023 Festival is presented by Rye Reads learning Center and will be held in Rye, NY. Date and location to be announced shortly.
