This year's Fox Cities Book Festival is completely online.
The festival kicks off with 2020 NEW Big Read: Fox Cities Reads author -- Kao Kalia Yang -- postponed from April. Ms. Yang’s The Latehomecomer was the perfect book for us to read as a communtiy altogether. She is also the author of The Song Poet and the children’s picture book A Map into the World. Kao Kalia Yang is a Hmong-American. Her story is a moving and inspirational tale. Find links to interviews and more.
The festival website has event updates, festival author information, news, schedule updates, and much more. The website also has the links required to join the events on your device or smartphone. And it explains how to donate to the festival.
