Children's Literature Festival

CLF 2017

Festival Advisory Board

The Festival Advisory Board was created in 1990. With new difficulties presented by growing Festival audiences, we requested advice on structuring a new format while continuing to provide a high quality program.

Since most people attending the conference are from New England, we decided to have one representative for each state. Board members serve three-year terms and are selected from a pool of those who regularly attend the Festival.

In appreciation of their contributions to and involvement in the Festival, each board member receives a complimentary Festival ticket for each year of their term, as well as an invitation to the Saturday night dinner for guest speakers.
