All
Free but advance reservations recommended

Check out the ninth annual 90-Second Newbery Film Festival—a yearly video contest in which kid filmmakers create weird short movies that tell the entire stories of Newbery award-winning books in about 90 seconds.

The screening is hosted by children's authors James Kennedy (The Order of Odd-Fish) and Newbery Honor winner Rita Williams-Garcia (One Crazy Summer).

Tickets are free, but this event has been crowded in the past -  reserve your seat to ensure admittance.
