Canadian Children’s Book Week (CCBW) is Canada’s largest celebration of reading, connecting Canadian authors and illustrators with children and teens across Canada. The events are organized by the Canadian Children’s Book Centre, a national, not-for-profit organization founded in 1976.
To celebrate CCBW, we will feature a series of six virtual author and illustrator talks. Teachers, schools, classrooms, children, and families across the province are welcome to attend! All events are hosted by Halifax Public Libraries on Zoom. Click on the links below to register today.
