BookFest 2012 Nanaimo

26TH Person To Buy Ticket Wins A FREE Book

BookFest provides the rare opportunity for elementary school aged children to meet some of Canada's best children's authors and illustrators.

Join Andrea Beck, Mike Deas, Julie Flett, Michael Kusugak, Julie Lawson, Martin Springett, Joan Betty Stuchner, Paul Yee and Werner Zimmermann as they enchant young and old with dynamic presentations that bring their books to life. Find out what happened after the Titanic went down, hear the true story of a Great Dane who adopted a Comox Valley fawn, learn secrets shared by a hen from Chelm and discover graphic novels that will entice even the most reluctant reader.

Enjoy the energetic rhythms of the Oceanside Jangano Marimba Band as well as face painting and bubbles at lunch time.  All sessions take place in venues surrounding the Diana Krall Plaza in the heart of downtown Nanaimo.  The renowned BookFest presenters will be available for book signing following the last session.  Bring your own favourites or buy books on site.   The Harbourfront Library provides free rhyme-time, musical storytime and puppet show for preschool children too young to attend BookFest.

For only $10, children ages 5 to 12 get three sessions with some of Canada's finest children's authors, illustrators and storytellers. Family passes are $25. 
Adult admission is free but all adults need to be accompanied by a child. 

Sessions sell out so buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment.

To help you make session choices, a printable version of the flyer is on the BookFest website.
