Plum Creek Literacy Festival
The award-winning Plum Creek Literacy Festival, founded in 1996, seeks to encourage a love of reading, writing and books by bringing nationally renowned authors and illustrators to Nebraska who host interactive workshops and keynotes for school children and adults.
We are saddened to announce that we had to make the difficult decision to cancel the Plum Creek Literacy Festival Children’s Day and Adult Conference, taking place on Concordia's campus Friday, Sept. 24 and Saturday, Sept. 25, respectively.
Plum Creek Literacy Festival's 25th Anniversary Campaign
God has been gracious and blessed the Plum Creek Literacy Festival in countless ways over the past 25 years. From our humble beginnings of one day, one author, 200 students in 1996 to three days, 16 authors and more than 15,000 participants in recent years, we thank God and we also stop to reflect and ask, "Where do we go next?"
Our 25th Anniversary Campaign is raising funds to ensure the festival continues to make a positive impact on students, educators and literacy champions for another 25 years!Support Plum Creek Literacy Festival
