Who’s On Tour

TD Canadian Children’s Book Week will take place from Saturday, May 4 to Saturday, May 11, 2013. Thirty English-speaking authors, illustrators and storytellers will be visiting schools, libraries, bookstores and community centres in every province and territory across the country.

The Book Week tour participants will travel to the shores of Newfoundland and Labrador, across the Prairies, through the mountains of British Columbia and up to the very tips of Nunavut, the Northwest Territories and the Yukon. They will visit schools, libraries, community centres and bookstores in every province and territory and speak to their audiences about the pleasures of reading, writing and illustrating books for children and teens.
