Canadian Children's Book Week

December 7 2022

Apply to Host a Presentation or Workshop by Amazing Canadian Authors, Illustrators & Storytellers!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Toronto (December 6, 2022) The Canadian Children’s Book Centre (CCBC) is excited to announce that we are now accepting applications from schools, libraries, and community groups who wish to host creators participating in our 2023 Canadian Children's Book Week tour. 

Who can apply to host a presentation and/or workshop?
Our goal is to reach as many young people as possible through this program: schools, public libraries, community groups, literacy networks, family resource centres, and homeschooling associations. If you’ve got an audience wanting to read more great Canadian books for kids and teens and be inspired to develop their budding skills as writers, artists, and storytellers, you have the ideal audience!

What format will it be?
In-person: This year, ten of the Book Week authors/illustrators/storytellers touring will be doing in-person visits.

Virtual format: The other twenty-two Book Week authors/illustrators/storytellers will be presenting virtually on Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, or whichever platform works best for your group.
If reliable internet access is a barrier for your school, library, organization, or community, please contact us about our Book Week program kits.

Who’s touring by region?
Here is a list, divided by region, of the dynamic Canadian authors/illustrators/storytellers on tour.

You can access the profile pages of the Book Week creators by clicking on their names in the list.
