MIDLAND, Texas – The Midland Education Foundation has announced that it will host its first-ever Pond Book Festival.

This free event will run from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on April 9 at the Southwest Museum.

Featured at this event will be festival booths, signs, games, crafts, face painting, and dozens of authors and illustrators.

While the event is aimed primarily at children and fostering a love of reading from an early age, there will be a small section for adults featuring novelists Stephen Harrigan and Sarah Perry.

Children can meet authors like Jane O’Connor, Jennifer Ziegler and Chris Baron.

Additionally, the Midland Education Foundation will announce the winner of a high school short story writing contest.

The organizers say they hope to make this event annual and allow everyone to enjoy literature and discover new authors.
