2023 Events

We are pleased to present the following events as part of our Authors@School programming:

Kingston WritersFest is proud to bring some of Canada’s best children’s authors to Kingston area elementary to share stories and illustrate the power of words to inspire and delight. This is a chance to nurture Canada’s future writers and readers, and to demonstrate that the written word is not only captivating but accessible.

This year Maria Birmingham, Erin Bow, Andrea Curtis, Mark Sakamoto, Geraldo Valério, and Marty Wilson-Trudeau visit twelve schools on Wednesday, September 27. Young audiences get the chance to meet writers, participate in activities, listen to story readings, and learn about worlds beyond their own.
