About the Gulf Coast Children's Book Festival

Boys & Girls Clubs of South Alabama’s mission is:  To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. In our efforts to help our children reach their potential, we have developed our “Read, Learn, Achieve Initiative” to address the low reading proficiency and the lack of interest in reading for fun.  One of our goals is to help spark a love of reading in as many children as possible.


 The Gulf Coast Children’s Book Festival will offer author signings, illustrator workshops, storyteller stages, entertainment stages, educational/informational exhibits, costumed book characters, book sales, a picnic area and more.  At the festival, and in all of our initiative programs, we want to get books into the hands of every child possible.


We hope you will attend the Gulf Coast Children’s Book Festival and be a part of our Read, Learn, Achieve efforts.
