NHCC Children’s Bilingual Book Festival
April 15, 2021 - April 18, 2021
9 am-5 pm (MST)
This annual festival is the only one of its kind in the U.S. that features children’s books in Spanish and English and Indigenous languages and English. The focus on Spanish, English, Indigenous languages books and authors makes this festival particularly meaningful and vibrant, reflecting the identities of many children in New Mexico, the American Southwest, and beyond. We want to encourage children to see themselves in contemporary children’s literature as well as introduce a bilingual body of work to a wider audience. The four-day event features author readings, workshops, and interactive events for kids and families.
