On October 9 from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., the Encinitas library is hosting the San Diego County Library Book Festival. The all-ages event will host popular authors, discussion panels, free entertainment and activities, as well as local food vendors.

The Book Festival will feature a keynote address by Richard Dreyfuss, who will speak on civics and The Dreyfuss Initiative, Pulitzer Prize winning poet Rae Armantrout, and Justin Halpern, author of "Sh*t My Dad Says", which will soon become a television series.

For teens, author of the popular "Pendragon" series, D.J. MacHale, will be there, along with world-class skateboarder Lynn Kramer who will be hosting a Deck Out Your Deck skateboard art program.

Children can enjoy meeting Gretchen Wendel, author of "Becka and the Big Bubble," and Edith Hope Fine, California Young Reader Medal winner, while also taking part in face painting, airbrush tattoos, and a Hullabaloo children’s concert.

Library Director José Aponte is “excited to offer the San Diego community this fun all-ages event which also embodies our library’s vision to create and support informed, literate, and engaged communities.”

The San Diego County Library Book Festival is a free, fun-filled day of literacy and entertainment. For more information, contact the Encinitas library at 760-753-7376 or visit
