Vancouver Island Children's Book Festival
May 6, 2017
Downtown Nanaimo
Renowned authors and illustrators from across Canada are invited to present their work, tell stories about their creations and lives, and inspire youth through literature and art.

BookFest is a wonderful, fun-filled day for children and adults alike. The day is divided into three sessions of 45 minutes each, starting at 10:15 a.m., 11:15 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Each child who registers may bring a parent and pick three BookFest presenter sessions of their choice. The presenters use a variety of techniques to inspire creativity and enthusiasm for books in their audience: some use technology, some use story-blankets, and others may leap and bounce about. Audience participation is common, as the presenters ask children to help with future book ideas or assist with a new illustration.
