Did You Know?

The Hudson Children's Book Festival is the LARGEST book festival in New York State! 

2015's Hudson Children's Book Festival set for Saturday, May 2nd!

Stay tuned here for more information on the Seventh Annual Hudson Children's Book Festival on May 2, 2015!

Author of the Week: Debbie Dadey

Debbie Dadey grew up in Henderson, Kentucky. She often got in trouble in school for talking too much. When she was young, her grandmother Bailey kept a journal, and this inspired Debbie to become a writer. She is now the co-author of the Baily School Kids, a series about a group of children who continually meet interesting characters who may or may not secretly be mythical creatures. Some well-known Bailey School Kids books are Vampires Don't Wear Polka-Dots, Werewolves Don't Go to Summer Camp, and Santa Claus Doesn't Mop Floors. This series has been a best-seller since the 1990s. Debbie also wrote two books, Slime Wars and Slime Time, with her son Nathan. She now lives in Furlong, Pennsylvania, with her husband Eric and her three children and their dogs. She loves tennis, scrapbooking, and strawberries.

A thank you to everyone who made the 2014 Book Festival a huge success!

And special thank you to all of those that contributed to the 2nd Annual Hudson Children's Book Festival Scholarship Fund (Founded by Chris Jones & Susan Simon)
Sincerely, Lisa Dolan & Jennifer Clark HCBF Co-Directors
