The Canadian Children’s Book Centre (CCBC) is excited to announce the touring creators for Canadian Children’s Book Week 2022. Over fifty talented Canadian authors, illustrators and storytellers have been selected to take part in this virtual tour and share a love of reading with young people in schools, libraries and homes all across Canada. Established in 1977, the upcoming national tour will take place from May 1-7, 2022. We are thrilled to share the news that this year’s poster will be illustrated by the Fan Brothers, the creators behind The Barnabus Project, winner of both the Governor General’s Literary Award and the TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award. The theme for the 2022 tour is Sail into Stories. We are excited to see how the Fan Brothers will encapture that theme in their poster.
Applications for schools, libraries, bookstores and community organizations interested in hosting readings will open the week of December 6th. Check bookweek.ca for the latest updates and subscribe to the CCBC’s newsletter for monthly updates concerning all of the CCBC’s programs.
Congratulations to all of the selected creators and thank you to everyone who applied. This year’s roster was chosen by a volunteer committee of experts.
