Book Week is a great and relatively inexpensive way to have a well known Canadian author visit your school or library. The cost per reading is $150.00 plus a Shared Tour Cost of $50.00.
Applications are now open to host an author, illustrator or storyteller visit during TD Canadian Children’s Book Week 2014.

TD Canadian Children's Book Week is the single most important national event celebrating Canadian children's books and the importance of reading and stories. Jill Bryant, author and Kathy Stinson, author will be visiting schools, libraries, bookstores and community centres in Alberta in May 2014. Find out more and register at: http://www.bookweek.ca/

Every year, readings are given in schools, libraries and other public venues across Alberta. Authors connect with children and teens during Book Week. Meeting an author can encourage children to create their own stories and provide them with an avenue to explore their own creativity. Register now the deadline is December 31.
