About The Festival

It is with sadness that we must tell you that the
2017 Lititz Kid-Lit Festival

As you can imagine, this is not an easy decision. We are incredibly proud of our festival and we know its importance to our community. Unfortunately, we’ve had a series of issues that have have diverted our time, energy, and finances, and we are not confident that we can put on an event that meets our standards.

We have spent the better part of 10 years putting together this wonderful event for the families and educators of this region. It has been a passion of ours since its inception in 2008. The festival is about bringing young readers together with wonderful authors and illustrators. It is really not about selling tickets or books. In fact, years that we come out “even” we view as an added bonus to the success of the event. We have every intention to bring the festival back to Lititz in 2018, so look out for future announcements.

* If you purchased tickets online- we are working with the ticketing company to issue refunds.
* If you purchased tickets in the shop- please bring them back to the shop so that we may give you a full refund.

Thank you to all who have supported this endeavor and the shop in the past. We look forward to seeing you in the store during the holiday shopping season.

 I’ve attended the Lititz Book Festival and been to Aaron’s Books a few times over the years, and I was always charmed by the community and walkability of this little town. Lititz provided a great blueprint as place where a kid could walk from their house to town to school without a problem, plus it was near Amish country and Philadelphia (which both feature heavily in THE MIGHTY ODDS). Also, I wanted to be invited back to the book festival. ~~ 2016 FEATURED AUTHOR, Amy Ignatow


About the Festival

Our festival’s mission is to bring together kids, parents, teachers and authors to celebrate the beauty of the written (and illustrated word) for the younger readers (and those of us that don’t want to stop reading good that remind us of our youth). Aaron’s Books is located in the heart of Central Pennsylvania. We are family owned and operated since opening in 2005. The store is named after Aaron, who is 14 years old.
Now in its 9th year- here are some pictures from previous festivals, featuring Sharon Robinson, Nick Bruel, Brian Biggs, Daniel Kirk, Tom Angleberger, Matt Phelan, Eric Wight, Josh Berk, Mitali Perkins and lots of other great writers for kids of all ages!
