In addition to a seriously amazing lineup of authors, illustrators, and other publishing industry professionals speaking at Serendipity 2015 we are fortunate to have Shannon Ozirny as our host. If you have been to Serendipity in recent years, you will recognize Shannon as the fabulously energetic and enviably witty sprite at the microphone and mistress of ceremonies of our larger events.
Besides being a member of this year’s Odyssey Award committee, which honours the best audiobook produced for children and/or young adults, Shannon is a brilliant librarian and head of the youth department at West Vancouver Memorial Library. She has spoken at TEDx, has presented at numerous conferences, and remains one of the most engaging emcees you’ll probably ever see.
And, of course, one cannot speak of Shannon without mentioning her great taste in music and her cutting edge fashion sense. Come see Shannon host this wonderful lineup and keep you energized throughout the day!
Speaking of cutting-edge fashion, we will be giving away prizes for the best edgy, eerie, exceptional costumes at Serendipity this year. Pick a character or theme from one of our presenters’ books and don’t hold back.
And, because we “heart” you, we’ve extended our Early Bird ticket prices–register before February 14.
