Wednesday, March 4th is World Read Aloud Day. Myself, along with other CWILL BC members will be sharing our passion for literacy and our joy for reading as some special BC events. BC is one of the few provinces in Canada organizing events with professional writers and illustrators for this celebration that highlights everyone’s right to learn to read and to have access to literature. I’ll be at Christianne’s Lyceum with Tiffany Stone, Dan Bar-el, Duane Lawrence, Cindy Heinrichs, Suzanne De Montigny and Janet Whyte and at the Richmond Public Library with Sheri Radford, Silvana Goldemberg and Rie Charles.
See the information below and take this opportunity to come out and read aloud with some awesome authors!
