Celebrating Stories

Celebrating Stories is a series of free family literacy events that offers a unique opportunity for children and families to meet Canadian authors, illustrators, and storytellers live and in-person. Where children have only seen authors’ names printed on the spines of books, Celebrating Stories events provide the opportunity to meet prizewinning authors in-person, hear their stories, and see illustrations being brought to life. Celebrating Stories strengthens family literacy and learning through the shared love of reading with motivational messages and entertainment.

Special thanks to the community sponsors whose funding supports Celebrating Stories.
