BAM Fam Good Morning!

Each year we love seeing your smiling faces at BAM Festival – our free, annual Books, Art, Music Festival for all ages. This year our festival, like everything else, may look a little different. But what will stay the same is that you will still be able to engage with some of your favorite authors and illustrators as they introduce themselves in this roundtable-style kick-off to our main event. Hurry and grab a virtual seat today – this is the only place you will be able to see all of our presenters in one place!

FINAL CALL!

Release of the first BAM Book! Bonus: Announcements of Winners and Finalists of the Day
Last year, one lucky contestant of Stephen Kozan’s writing workshop won the opportunity to publish her own book. That book is being released today, one year later, and is for sale! After being mentored by author Stephen Kozan and his team, 2020 BAM teen Samantha Mason completed publication. Her first book is titled-- Lillian Grace is Absolutely NOT Normal. We hope you check it out and show her some BAM Fam love by preordering it here.
