I’ll be at CWILL’s annual Hycroft event this year, flashing my pearly whites and waving around 50 Burning Questions. But, if you’re a teacher and/or librarian, there are better reasons to pencil the date on your calendar. There are snacks, for example.
More importantly, there is a guest speaker: Sarah Ellis. And how can you go wrong eating snacks, listening to Sarah Ellis, and admiring Hycroft holiday decor? (That is a rhetorical questions. You can’t go wrong.)
Here’s the blurb from the CWILL blog:
The annual Hycroft Event takes place in just under a month!
Vancouver Children’s Literature Roundtable the Children’s Writers & Illustrators of British Columbia Society bring you the 2010 Hycroft Event with special guest Sarah Ellis.
Date: November 9, 2010
Time: Doors open at 6:00pm | program begins at 6:30pm
Location: Hycroft Manor – 1489 McRae Avenue (off 16th Ave. at Granville St)
The Hycroft Event offers a social evening where teachers, librarians, parents and children’s book lovers have an opportunity to see new releases from the year and meet the people who write and illustrate them. Vancouver Kidsbooks will also be selling the titles on location.
This year’s event format will allow guests more opportunity to meet and talk to authors and illustrators and to see their books.
The event is sponsored by Vancouver Children’s Literature Roundtable
