CWILL BC is offering a children’s book illustrator master class. As a rule, CWILL BC’s author and illustrator master classes are only open to CWILL BC members. But for this one, they’ve opened up a couple of spots to non-members. (There are literally only a couple of seats left – so move fast if you want to take part!) Full details on the CWILL BC blog.
The North Vancouver City Library, the BC Coalition for School Libraries and CWILL BC present the Fall Book Harvest on Friday, October 16, 2009.
Along with an afternoon of live presentations, free autographs, displays, door prizes, activities and a book sale hosted by Kidsbooks, there is a chance for local schools to win a free author or illustrator visit. Read the full contest details on the CWILL BC blog.
