    Telling Tales @Home

    Virtual Event

    This session is for teens and adults who have dreams of publishing their own children’s book. We are going to learn from authors and illustrators who have just been published, others that are well established and some who work in the industry. Did you know that there is an organization that exists to help aspiring adults to network and learn the craft from each other and it’s called CANSCAIP. Canadian Society of Children’s Authors, Illustrators and Performers. We have invited the President of Canscaip to moderate this session.

We’re bringing all the fun, fascination and learning from our Imagination Station into your home this year. Join us as we present specially themed workshops to inspire and engage.
