TD Canadian Children's Book Week 2008
"The mission of TD Canadian Children's Book Week is to connect the authors and illustrators of Canadian children's and young adult books with readers across Canada. TD Canadian Children's Book Week is Canada's largest celebration of reading and Canadian children's books. The first Book Week tour was held in 1977 and since then over 300 Canadian authors, illustrators and storytellers have toured throughout the country. Every November, in celebration of TD Canadian Children's Book Week, the Canadian Children's Book Centre (CCBC) sends authors, illustrators and storytellers on a cross-Canada tour to give readings, workshops and presentations to children in schools, libraries, community centres and bookstores. This year the Book Week tour will run from November 15 to 22, 2008"
