Your Chance to Host the 2019 Book Bash Canadian Children’s Literature Festival

June 05, 2018

I am pleased to announce that the Toronto Public Library Foundation is now accepting applications from Canadian public libraries to host the 2019 Book Bash Canadian Children’s Literature Festival!

Book Bash Canadian Children’s Literature Festival is a fun-filled, free children’s festival featuring a variety of activities and programs with Canadian children’s authors, illustrators and entertainers. The Festival promotes reading and recognizes Canada’s talented writers and illustrators of children’s books. Funding for the Festival, up to $20,000, is thanks to the generous support of the Muller Scholastic Endowment Fund for Canadian Children’s Literature through the Toronto Public Library Foundation. 

All Canadian public libraries interested in hosting Book Bash in 2019 are invited to apply by July 23, 2018
