William B. Jones's "Petit Jean" Selected for the National Book Festival


The Arkansas Center for the Book has selected Petit Jean: A Wilderness Adventure (a novella for young readers by William B. Jones; illustrated by Gary Zaboly) to represent the state at the Library of Congress's National Book Festival and for inclusion in its "Discover Great Places Through Reading" program.

The National Book Festival, an annual event held in Washington, DC, is a celebration of the joy of books and reading that is sponsored by the Library of Congress and gives attendees the opportunity to visit with more than 175 award-winning authors, illustrators and poets who will talk about and sign their books. This year's festival is Saturday, September 24.

Representatives from across the United States and its territories will celebrate their unique literary offerings in the Pavilion of the States. Guests are invited to collect state stickers and stamps and "Discover Great Places Through Reading."
