The winners of the 2019 Joan Betty Stuchner — Oy Vey! — Funniest Children’s Book Awards (Picture or Board Book category & Chapter Book category) will be announced at a special, giggle-filled celebration on:
Wednesday, June 19th, 2019 | 7-9 pm
at Slickety Jim’s Chat ‘n’ Chew
3475 Main Street, Vancouver
This award is in memory of Joan Betty Stuchner, beloved children’s author and teacher, who passed away unexpectedly in 2014. Joan was many things — brave, gracious, warm, generous, kind and absolutely hilarious to boot. (“Oy vey!” she’s probably saying now…) With this award we honour Joan’s life-affirming humour and encourage other children’s writers to laugh it up on the page the way she did.
Please join us! For more information, see: http://www.joanbettystuchneraward.org/news/
BONUS TEACHER LIBRARIAN BOOK DRAWS: Attend for a chance to win a collection of 1) all the Oy Vey submissions, and 2) a $500 collection of books by BC authors and illustrators, which is part of the BC Book Prizes “Adopt a Library” program.
