Taking the Book Festival around the state!

As part of the Kentucky Book Festival, the School Days Program brings authors to dozens of schools across Kentucky to meet students in an exciting, interactive learning experience. Each student receives a signed book from the author to add to their reading collections at home. Schools awarded incur no charges for these visits thanks to support from our sponsors.
