There’s so much happening in the Philly area for Children’s Book Week that it doesn’t make sense to list everyday’s literary events day-by-day, the list would just be too long. Instead here are the links to local stores, library’s, etc. that will be sponsoring special events this week. Where possible, the link will take you to the listings for Children’s Book Week Events.

Children’s Book World, 17 Haverford Station Rd. Haverford, PA

Big Blue Marble, 551 Carpenter Lane, Philadelphia, PA

The Doylestown Bookshop, 16 S Main St., Doylestown, PA

Booktender’s Secret Garden, 42 E State Street Rear, Doylestown, PA

Free Library of Philadelphia, Central Library, Philadelphia, PA

Towne Book Center & Cafe, 220 Plaza Drive, Suite B-3, Collegeville, PA 19426

In addition, Indie Bound the organization that works to bring together Independent Bookstores is sponsoring its first annual Story Time festival on May 17th. Authors from around the country will be volunteering to read from their books to showcase the vibrant role independent bookstores fill in communities around the country. A bunch of Pennsylvania stores are joining in the fun. Check the listings here to find out who’s participating.

If you are looking for events for adults, there are some of those coming up too!

As always, please feel free to let me know of events I may have missed — I know I don’t catch every listing or every venue. Today especially, lack of sleep has left me heavy-lidded and sure that I’m overlooking something…
