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
