Are you a Canadian creator who has written or illustrated at least two books for young people? Do you love talking about your books and sharing your love of reading with young readers? Apply to take part in Canadian Children’s Book Week 2021 to virtually visit young people all across the country and celebrate books and stories. Canadian Children’s Book Week is the single most important national event celebrating Canadian children’s books and the importance of reading. Taking place every year since 1977, for the first time, Canadian Children’s Book Week will be a bilingual tour planned in tandem by the Canadian Children’s Book Centre and Communication-Jeunesse.
Next year’s tour will take place from May 2 to May 8, 2021, and will allow young readers to connect with their favourite authors and illustrators. The virtual meetings will take place from coast to coast to coast in English and French and provide a great opportunity to immerse oneself in the creative world of children’s literature. Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, all creator visits will be virtual and engaging.

Communication-Jeunesse is a national non-profit cultural organization that was founded in 1971 to promote and appreciate Quebec and Franco-Canadian literature aimed at young people age 0 to 17. The vitality of the organization is largely based on the quality of its associative life and the commitment of its members has been at the heart of its operations since its creation. The members of Communication-Jeunesse enrich its actions and promote its development with as much rigor as energy. For more information, please visit communication-jeunesse.qc.ca.
