ScholarShare Children's Book Festival

All aboard for reading! Join News10 at Fairytale Town for the 13th annual ScholarShare Children's Book Festival on September 28 and 29.

Sherri Duskey Rinker, the New York Times bestselling author of "Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site" and "Steam Train, Dream Train," will headline the two-day Festival. Admission to the Festival and Fairytale Town is free to the public thanks to the event's sponsor, ScholarShare College Savings Plan.

Rinker will present "Steam Train, Dream Train," which debuted in the number one spot on the New York Times bestseller list in April 2013. "Steam Train, Dream Train" is the eagerly anticipated follow up book to "Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site," Rinker's first picture book and the number one New York Times bestseller.

News10's 'Reading Connects'

News10 has launched a major initiative called 'Reading Connects.' Its purpose is to help build a stronger community, one reader at a time.

Fact: 37% of third graders in Sacramento read at grade level. 74% of those students will never catch up.

News10 is teaming up with parents, businesses, schools, libraries and volunteers to improve the literacy rate in our area. We are combining the power of television, the web, and social media with the power of good people who want to make a difference.

Reading is one of the keys to a successful and productive life.

A minor investment of your time can change the path of a child's life.

We are here to help with information, resources and opportunities- for you to help build a better community.

Get your Poe on!

Sacramento Public Library has chosen the stories and poems of early 19th-century American author Edgar Allan Poe for its 2013 One Book Sacramento project - the community's biggest book club!

The Poe Project invites local amateur filmmakers to create short films based on a Poe work or theme, which are no longer than 13 minutes. Or, you may enter the full-length screenwriting competition of an adaptation of Poe's work.

Entries are due in late summer 2013 and cash prizes will be awarded.

A workshop that explains the competition is scheduled for 7 p.m., Tuesday, January 22, at The Art Institute of Sacramento, 2850 Gateway Oaks Drive, Sacramento.

For more information about January 22 workshop, please contact Mary Beth Barber at (916) 429-5105 or Laurie Pederson at (916) 600-6477 or by e-mail at info@capitalfilmarts.com.
