Connecting Canadian Authors & Illustrators with Kids
Updated: May 3, 2022
Meeting authors, illustrators and storytellers can be a turning point in a child’s life, inspiring a lifelong love of reading. Canadian Children's Book Week runs May 1-7, 2022 to connect kids and teens with great Canadian reads and the people who create them.
We're excited to welcome author Andrew Larsen on Thursday, May 5 for two virtual visits. Andrew will be presenting Another Squiggly Story - a story about writing stories. Kid meets blank page in this fun exploration of the writing process. This playful book celebrates self-expression, self-discovery and letting your imagination roam. It's the perfect choice to inspire the storyteller in every child!
You can learn more about Andrew's stories at https://www.andrewlarsen.ca/. If you are a teacher interested in having your class attend virtually, please email Raymond at rbach.egpl.ca for the link. You can also register on our Eventbrite page.
