Did you know that enjoying freshly made pancakes this Sunday at the Bar Harbor Fire Station will result in future book lovers?

This new fundraiser, hosted by the Bar Harbor Fire Department and Bar Harbor Rotary Club will transform the fire house into a fundraising food fest while raising money to support this October’s Bar Harbor Kids’ Book Festival where over 40 children’s authors and illustrators will journey throughout Mount Desert Island interacting with kids, future writers, and the community in an event that is sure to inspire kids and grown-ups to write, read, and create books.

The book festival is a volunteer-run and led labor of love; love of reading, love of writing and the love a child feels when she or he discovers the magic that story brings into their own lives.

Tickets for the breakfast can be purchased at the firehouse on the day of the event. Food service begins at 8 a.m. and lasts until approximately 10:30 a.m.
