Festival of Trees 2016: Scheduled events

This month, young readers are voting for their favourite books in the Ontario Library Association's Forest of Reading program, and next month these readers' choice awards will be announced at Festival of Trees celebrations in London, Sault Ste. Marie and Toronto.  For those whose children are voting but haven't committed to attending one of the ceremonies, rethink that decision with this listing of workshops by youngCanLit authors and illustrators.  What a phenomenal opportunity for young people to meet and learn from our outstanding contributors to young CanLit.  Full details are available at the website Forestfestivaloftrees.ca/festivals/
