Join us in a starry tribute to the brilliant picturebook editor and publisher, the late Sheila Barry, nurturer of books such as Sidewalk Flower, Speak Norman, Speak, Small in the City, and so many more.
Featuring some of Canada’s children’s lit stars: Caroline Adderson, Linda Bailey, Sarah Ellis, Robert Heidbreder, Deborah Hodge, and Tundra editor/publisher, Tara Walker.
We will also be officially announcing the new Sheila Barry Best Canadian Picturebook of the Year Award.
We welcome donations to help us cover the cost of offering reduced rates to students. Vancouver Kidsbooks will be on hand to sell books.
We are also holding a silent auction of great books, illustrations, and items related to picturebooks and children’s literature.
