We have an amazing line up of events we are hosting or participating in this summer. Have a look at what we’ll be getting up to at our storefront and in neighbourhoods across Toronto.
The Children’s Book Bank will be back at the Cabbagetown Festival hosting its 2nd Annual Book Sale as part of the vendors market. The festival runs from Saturday, September 8 to Sunday, September 9 in the heart of Cabbagetown. The Book Bank will be there from 11 am – 7 pm with some fantastic deals on YA and adult books (things you won’t see at the CBB) and all proceeds go toward funding our programming activities.
The Wonder of Storytelling: An evening with Emma Donoghue
We’re delighted to announce that award-winning writer Emma Donoghue will be joining us to talk about storytelling and her highly successful career with author, Charles Foran at Artscape Sandbox, 301 Adelaide Street West, on Thursday, September 20 at 6 pm. Last year’s evening, featuring Yann Martel and Margaret MacMillan, was a sold-out success and we expect to have another sold-out evening this year as well. For tickets click here.
The Word on the Street Festival
The Children’s Book Bank will be at The Word on the Street Toronto Festival at Harbourfront Centre on Sunday, September 23, 2017 from 10 am – 5 pm. This year we’re hosting The Book Bank on the Street – a mini version of what we do here on Berkeley Street. We’ll have shelves set up with some wonderful books, a reading corner (with a few story times) and a checkout table – for families to browse, choose and take home a book of there own for FREE. So be sure to stop by our booth on Kids Street.
International Festival of Authors
We are thrilled to announce that our Book Club has been invited to return to the International Festival of Authors at Harbourfront Centre, again this fall. We are still working on details and can’t wait to share more information with you soon.
