The Canadian Children’s Book Centre (CCBC) is excited to announce the touring creators for Canadian Children’s Book Week 2020. Seven talented Canadian authors and illustrators were selected from nearly 100 applicants to tour outside of their home provinces and share a love of reading with young people in schools and libraries.
