We are currently in the process of redesigning our website. Thank you for your patience while we make changes. In the meantime, the other pages on this site will tell you a bit about BookFest 2014.
Look for BookFest 2014 on our YouTube channel!
We believe all children are inspired and enriched by opportunities that bring children and the creators of Canadian Children's literature together in an atmosphere of celebration and family fun. Our purpose is to provide such opportunities by offering hospitality, support, and exposure to Canadian authors and illustrators through a quality, child-centered, community book festival.
"We are proud to work with the children, families, authors, illustrators, and community members who make this festival a success."
- To promote literacy and a love of literature in the central Vancouver Island region by introducing children to high-quality works by Canadian authors & illustrators;
- To stimulate children's creativity by bringing them together with professional authors and illustrators who share their creative development and processes;
- To celebrate excellence in Canadian children's literature and book illustration by showcasing both well-established and notable new authors and illustrators.
