Over the years of writing and illustrating children’s books I’ve been fortunate to visit schools and libraries across Canada and into the high Arctic. Yet sometimes the places closest to home get left out.
Because I believe strongly not only in the beauty of books and the magic of reading, but also in the future of book stores, I want to, with the help of a lucky girl of boy, give a local school a present:
I will be giving away a Day in a School to any elementary school in the Guelph area.*
From now until December 20th, come in and fill out a ballot at the Bookshelf.
No purchase is necessary.
I will be at the Bookshelf Saturday Dec 8, noon until 3 to meet and sign copies of ‘A Porcupine in a Pine Tree’
Hope to see you there.
*Aberfoyle, Rockwood, Fergus & Elora included.
Presentation date to be arranged by mutual agreement between January and March 2012
Winning school will be notified 8:30 a.m. December 21st.
