Festival of Trees™ ticket sales

DON'T MISS OUT on Canada's largest literary event for young people!
With the Ontario Library Association's Forest of Reading®
programs currently running in Ontario schools, many students are already anticipating the culminating event, 
  Festival of Trees

The Festival of Trees which will be held over two days in May at Toronto's Harbourfront will host over 8000 young readers.  This wonderful opportunity celebrates our children's love of reading with numerous workshops with authors and illustrators; music performances; buskers; activity tents for crafts, etc.; games for prizes; educational displays; book purchases at S & B's festival tent; author signings; and, of course, the announcement of the winners.

The two days' awards are separated, as follows:
May 15, 2012 : Blue Spruce, Red Maple and White Pine
May16, 2012:  Silver Birch
As events are often sold out, early purchase of tickets is recommended.
