Book Bash Canadian Children’s Literature Festival is a fun-filled free, children’s festival featuring a variety of activities and programs with Canadian children’s authors, illustrators and entertainers.
Funding for the Festival, up to $15,000, is made possible through the Muller Scholastic Endowment Fund for Canadian Children’s Literature at the Toronto Public Library Foundation. The Fund was established by Larry Muller, retired president of Scholastic Canada to create an annual, children’s literature festival promoting reading and recognizing the value of Canadian children’s literature to Canadian families.
The Festival will be held by Toronto Public Library every second year and by a Canadian public Library system outside of Toronto every other year.
Next application deadline will be in 2014.
