The Young Authors' Festival was a collaboration between the UM-Dearborn College of Education, Health and Human Services and the Mardigian Library from 2013 to 2019. The annual half-day program for students in grades 3-5 promoted student writing and creative expression, and featured a presentation from a Michigan author and/or illustrator, hands-on workshops led by pre-service education students, a writing contest and book signing.

We are thankful to the committee members, students and participants who supported the program for 7 successful years, and invite you to look back at the archived materials here.
