Story Explorers Book Fest

Readings, workshops, book sales and more!
Join us for the 2nd Annual Story Explorers Book Fest at The Athenaeum of Philadelphia! Children, youth and their families are invited for a day of our favorite things: books, libraries and maps! All day long there will be book sales, and chances to learn about The Athenaeum, the Kislak Center at Penn and local non-profit A Book A Day. Enjoy readings and workshops by local authors and teachers.

In the first floor gallery, explore our latest exhibit and learn more about the city of Philadelphia. Take a break in the lounge with a puzzle or a worksheet!
