MEETING Wed. Dec. 13 at 7:00; SPEAKERS: Vikki Van Sickle, Naseem Hrab, Liz MacLeod, Mary Beth Leatherdale and Hadley Dyer

Our special December holiday meeting features a panel of editors and other publishing people who are also authors:  Vikki Van Sickle, Naseem Hrab, Liz MacLeod, Mary Beth Leatherdale and Hadley Dyer. This panel will be fun and fascinating--don't miss it!

DESSERT POTLUCK: Our December dessert potluck is a CANSCAIP tradition, so bake or buy something yummy to bring! (And if you don't bring anything, come anyway. There's always plenty!) Coffee, plates and forks supplied.    

BOOK SALES: Feel free to bring copies of your newest book to sell (3 to 5 is usually enough). Everyone looks after their own sales, so bring loonies and toonies to make change. We suggest rounding prices (e.g., $10.00 instead of $10.95) to make sales easier to tally.  

ANNOUNCEMENTS BY MEMBERS: Got a new book? Award? Book launch? Get yourself on the agenda to make your announcement at the meeting! Send the following information to

  • Your name
  • Book title 
  • Publisher, genre and/or age range 
  • Summary of book and/or launch, award, tour, or other news 
  • Will you make your announcement at the meeting in person? 
  • Put Member Announcement and your name in the email subject line
