CANSCAIP OLA Book Launch!
If you’re at Ontario Library Super Conference February 26, 2010 join CANSCAIP for our annual book launch.
CANSCAIP and the Ontario Library Association join together to present their sixth annual mass book launch Friday February 26, 2010 at Expo Stage in hall C in the Toronto Convention Centre during the OLA Super Conference from noon to 2:15. Twenty authors and illustrators will introduce their 2009 titles in entertaining five minute infomercials. Sylvia McNicoll, Book Launch Coordinator of CANSCAIP will act as emcee and official timer. Enjoy the personalities behind the creations as well as their behind-the-creation stories. Buy a raffle ticket to win some of these stories. Picture books, middle reader age as well as young adult novels will all be available on site for purchase and the authors and artists will happy to autograph them for your collection.
CANSCAIP is the Canadian Society of Authors, Illustrators and Performers, of which I am a proud member (and former member of the exec.) We not only network and provide info and support to each other, but host a fantastic conference on the business of children's writers, for beginners and pros, every autumn called Packaging Your Imagination.
The OLA, among its many notable projects, sponsors Ontario's amazing Forest of Reading program, which includes the Red Maple, Blue Spruce, Silver Birch and White Pine children's choice awards. I'm proud that my kooky bug book, The Insecto-Files has been nominated in the Silver Birch Non-Fiction category this year.
