Do your kids love books?
Today they can meet local authors and illustrators who create them. Talk about an inspiration!
Check it out: Local authors and illustrators of children’s books are presenting their work and holding an autograph session at the 12th annual Kids’ Lit Gala today – Tuesday, October 16 – at 7 p.m. in the chamber at Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive. You’ll get to meet and greet folks who make wonderful children’s stories come to life.
Featured presentations are by Catherine Austen, Romi Caron, Alan Cumyn, Kalli Dakos, Jamieson Findlay, Sylvie Frigon, Caroline Pignat, Jo-Anne Rioux and Lucie Verreault. It’s a great opportunity for creative kids who love books to learn from the people behind them. It’s also an excellent opportunity for parents to buy some extra special – autographed – books that can be used as gifts for young readers.
The event is organized by the Ottawa Children’s Literature Roundtable (OCLR) and supported by the Ottawa Public Library (OPL). For more information, visit www.BiblioOttawaLibrary.ca or call InfoService at 613-580-2940.
