Just a reminder that the “Own a Piece of the Magic” event, a fundraiser in support of the Canadian Children’s Book Centre (CCBC) and the B.C. Coalition for School Libraries, two organisations that actively support and promote Canadian children’s books, is happening on May 21, 2008. There is more information on the BCCSL website. There is also a pdf on that page, with a ticket order form.
The tickets are $100 and that guarantees you a piece of original artwork. The artwork is randomly distributed so if there is a piece you particularly covet, you will be able to bid for it to make sure it goes home with you.
The event takes place in “one of Vancouver’s most spectacular waterfront venues”. hmm mysterious…
Calling children’s book illustrators, if you want to be a part of this by donating a piece of artwork to the cause (13″ x13″ max), there is still a little bit of time – please contact Kathryn Shoemaker: kshoe [at] telus [dot] net.
I’ve already sent in my piece. I wish it well in its new home.
