The ninth annual Hudson Children's Book Festival is happening on Saturday, May 6, at Hudson High School. It is, if you didn't know, one of the biggest book festivals in all of New York State.
On Saturday, April 1, the directors of the HCBF Literacy Fund are holding their fourth annual cocktail party fundraiser to raise money to sustain the literacy efforts in the Hudson City School District. The fund provides "Good For" coupons for HCSD students to buy a book from the author of their choice at the book festival. A tax deductible contribution of $35 at the cocktail party provides a "Good For" to one student. The HCBF Literacy Fund also provides financial awards to college bound students for books, and financial coupons for summer reading to students moving up from 1st, 5th, and 8th grades. The event, which is hosted by Colin and Katrina Stair, takes place at Stair Galleries, 549 Warren Street, from 5 to 7 p.m., on Saturday, April 1.
