Oghma Author, K.D. McCrite, to Speak at Children’s Literature Festival of the Ozarks

For the past 35 years, Missouri State University’s English Department has hosted the KD2Children’s Literature Festival of the Ozarks.  During the festival, students in grades 4-6 get a chance to meet local authors and learn not only about books but about being a writer. This year, Oghma’s K.D. McCrite, author of The Confessions of April Grace series and the brand new series The Further Confessions of April Grace, is a featured author. Only a handful of authors are asked to participate. Everyone at Oghma is thrilled for K.D. She deserves credit for her dedication to children’s literature and for her lively, laugh-out-loud books. AND Oghma is proud to count her as one of our own.

This year’s Festival takes place on October 22 on the MSU campus in Springfield, Missouri. From 9:30 to 1: 45, participants can meet and talk to authors—and, of course, buy their books. Later that evening, kids and authors get together again for an autograph session from 6 to 8.

If you have a student in 4th , 5th, or 6th grade or if you know an English teacher in southern Missouri who might be interested in taking a group of students to the festival, please select the link below for more information.
