Events for Kids, K-8
The popular and fun Authors@School program is back in class! 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, Amanda West Lewis, Christiane Duchesne, Heather O’Connor and Darcy Whitecrow, and Cary Fagan visit eight schools on Wednesday, September 28. Young audiences get the chance to meet writers, participate in on-the-spot illustrations, listen to story readings, and learn about worlds beyond their own.
