2017 Lititz Kid-Lit Festival
Our festivals mission is to bring together kids, parents, teachers and authors to celebrate the beauty of the written (and illustrated word) for the younger readers (and those of us that dont want to stop reading good that remind us of our youth). Aarons Books is located in the heart of Central Pennsylvania. We are family owned and operated since opening in 2005.
