Author Festival in Macomb County

Your kids can meet their favorite authors and learn to love reading even more at Macomb County's first-ever Author Festival on May 21, 2022.

Is your child a total bookworm? Then the Macomb County Author Festival is a can’t-miss event for your family.

This new festival, which will be held at the Macomb Intermediate School District (MISD) building in Clinton Township, happens on May 21, 2022, and will connect kids with some of their favorite authors.

“We wanted to bring authors out of the woodwork so students can actually meet them in person,” says Denise Jobe, the Distance Learning Event Coordinator with MISD. “Being able to meet their favorite authors is a big excitement for them — and for the authors, too.”

All of the authors featured at the event are from Michigan and write everything from children’s books to historical fiction. Some even write for adults.

“One author I’m excited to have join us is Janie Lynn Panagopoulos,” Jobe explains. ” Janie does Michigan history fiction books and she’s one of the most famous authors that students love.”

Other authors include Arthur Brood, Robert Lytle, Lori Taylor, Judy Sima, Clay Boura and many others.

Kids who attend the event will get the chance to ask their favorite writers about their books, writing techniques and more. Plus, they can purchase books at a discount from the authors they really love — and maybe even discover a new author or two.

They’ll also get to meet Owlie Skywarn — the official mascot of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Detroit/Pontiac weather office – who will be on site to talk about weather science and weather safety.

The Macomb County Author Festival is open to the public and is aimed at readers of all ages. Stop by the South end of the MISD building at 44001 Garfield Road, Clinton Township, between 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. on May 21 to get in on the fun.
