17th Annual North Texas Book Festival

The 17th Annual North Texas Book Festival will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 15, and lasts until 3 p.m. Nancy Churnin and more than 60 other authors are scheduled to sell and sign their books.

An Easter egg hunt with a twist also is planned.

There is no admission fee for the festival which is located in the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center at 400 E. Hickory St. in Denton.

Prior to the book festival there will be a breakfast. North Texas Book Festival’s guest speaker for the Chuckwagon Breakfast is Nancy Churnin, author of the children’s book “The William Hoy Story: How a Deaf Baseball Player Changed the Game”. The breakfast is 7-9:30 a.m. Saturday, April 15, at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center.

Churnin will discuss her long journey to become a published author. She published her first book last year, and Churnin’s second book, “Manjhi Moves a Mountain,” is scheduled for publication this year.

The breakfast also will include the announcement of NTBF Book Awards winners in several categories, as well as grant presentations to several North Texas public and school libraries and literacy programs. NTBF, a nonprofit, raises money for libraries and literacy programs each year.

Admission to the breakfast is $10 for each adult and $5 for each child under age 10. The Vintage Jazz Society will provide entertainment, and breakfast reservations must be received by April 7; reservations are required.
