Win a FREE Author Visit for your School

CWILL BC (Children’s Writers and Illustrators of BC) is making an amazing offer to BC schools this spring. To encourage students from K to 12 to attend our Spring Book Hatching extravaganza – which showcases the newest books of more than 30 authors and illustrators – we’re presenting a draw for a free author visit.

Every school with a student attending the event is eligible to participate in a draw for a free author or illustrator presentation (with an approximate value of $325) at their school. Also, the school with the most students at the event will also win a free author or illustrator presentation.

Here’s all you need to do:
Encourage students to attend Spring Book Hatching (free admission!) on May 2 (click HERE for more details). Better yet, encourage parents at your school to arrange carpools to the event.

The two winning schools will have a choice of choosing from the following authors:

Karen Autio: author of middle grade historical fiction

Fiona Bayrock: author of science and nature books for grades K-5

Rachelle Delaney: author of fantasy fiction for intermediate grades

kc dyer: author of historical time-travel novels for middle grade and young adult readers

Claire Eamer: author of history and science books for ages 10 and up

Tanya Kyi: author of non-fiction and novels for ages 10 and up

Shar Levine: author of hands-on science books for grades 4-6

Bruce McBay
: author of chapter books and young adult novels

Lois Peterson: author of early novels

Sheri Radford
: author of picture books

*Free in the Vancouver Lower Mainland only. Outside the Lower Mainland, minimal travel expenses apply.
