At the Vancouver Aquarium’s inaugural Science Literacy Week Book Fair on Saturday, September 26, three CWILL authors, Karen Autio, Maggie De Vries, and Alex Van Tol gave presentations.
Here are only a portion of the 50 science- and ocean-themed books that were part of the Book Fair.
With it also being Sea Otter Awareness Week, it was the perfect time and location for Karen Autio to launch her new illustrated chapter book KAH-LAN THE ADVENTUROUS SEA OTTER.

On Sunday, September 27, First Book Canada invited four CWILL authors to sign giveaway copies of their books at WORD Vancouver at Library Square.

What fun being able to give books to truly excited parents and young readers who couldn’t wait to start reading. Thanks for the opportunity, First Book Canada!
We bought a copy of Kah-Lan and just loved it.
It was wonderful to see you at the launch! I’m delighted you loved Kah-Lan.
