The Savannah Children’s Book Festival is brought to us by Live Oak Public Libraries and the Department of Cultural Affairs. This year’s event took place at Forsyth Park, Savannah’s largest park in Historic Downtown, on a gorgeous fall day and featured some of the most talented writers and illustrators around. These 11 pictures make us wish there was a book festival every weekend. From Batman to bookworms, there’s nothing better than a place where education and imagination collide.
1. Celebrities Attend
Glimsity: So where’s Robin?
Batman: Gotham City.
Glimsity: Where’s Superman?

2. Dogs that Read, Huh??
No, dogs that love to be read to! “By sitting down next to a dog and reading to the dog, all threats of being judged are put aside. The child relaxes…Reading improves because the child is practicing the skill of reading, building self-esteem, and associating reading with something pleasant.” –
