Next May I’ll be touring with 30 authors, illustrators, and storytellers from across the country as part of the TD Canadian Children’s Book Centre, Canadian Children’s Book Week program…or to keep it short and sweet – Canada Book Week.
This tour is unique in that it enables artists to extend their reach outside of their home province. We’ll be blasted all over the place…somewhere other than home. The fun part? We won’t know where we’re travelling to until around October-ish…all part of the grand adventure that awaits.
Check out the background info…
“The Canadian Children’s Book Centre is excited to announce the authors, illustrators and storytellers who will be touring for TD Canadian Children’s Book Week 2016 (May 7 – 14, 2016).
TD Canadian Children’s Book Week is the single most important national event celebrating Canadian children’s books and the importance of reading. Over 28,000 children, teens and adults participate in activities held in every province and territory across the country. Hundreds of schools, public libraries, bookstores and community centres host events as part of this major literary festival.
Visit the TD Book Week site (www.bookweek.ca) in October to find out what province/territory each of these creators will be touring and the types of readings and workshops they will be giving. Schools, libraries, bookstores and community centres interested in hosting a Book Week visitor can apply online starting mid-October.”
