EpicFest is an extraordinary, free literary festival that brings children, teens and families together with authors, illustrators and the Library.

This event welcomes book-lovers of all ages into a community of readers.

EpicFest is presented to the community by Wells Fargo, with community partner Read Charlotte, and with additional generous support from corporate citizens and individual sponsors.

EpicFest was created to remember and honor Jim and Elizabeth (Libby) Preston’s passion for reading, and to encourage and instill a love of reading in children.

For Publishers and Authors

Are you an author or illustrator, or representative of an author or illustrator, interested in participating in EpicFest? Please note that we ask our featured guests to be connected to a traditional publishing house, and to have more than one title to offer.

Please email Marie Harris at mharris@cmlibrary.org to express your interest. We look forward to hearing from you.
