About Neev Literature Festival

“Each book was a world unto itself, and in it I took refuge.- Alberto Manguel

Creating Readers for Life

“Books are humanity in print” ...Barbara Tuchman.

The most lasting gifts we can give our children are an insatiable thirst for reading and lifelong learning. The Neev Literature Festival, an annual event at the Neev Academy, celebrates the books that spark the joy of reading. The festival will bring together children, authors, educators, parents, and all those who engage with children and children’s literature.

Our mission is simple – “Love to Read, Read to Love” - we want to create readers for life. Our festival offers an open and friendly atmosphere in which children and authors will converse with and learn from each other.
