Information for authors & illustrators, vendors and entertainers

Present at BookFest

Canadian Authors & Illustrators

BookFest will consider Canadian children's book authors or illustrators that have published works within the last year or two for participation in the festival. Presenters are shortlisted in late summer and our lineup is typically finalized by early fall for the festival the following spring.

Presenters will present twice on the day of the festival and they will also have the opportunity to do school visits during the school week prior to the festival. Contact us for more information.
